"RIP TIDE" 11069, mixed media abstract waterscape © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Rip Tide"


This painting was a demo for my Park Hill class.  Most of the artists had not worked with torched foil before.  I wanted the whole class to work on the same compositional pattern below:


You can see that there is a nice division of space in this  rectangular format.  Each artist was to base their color palette on the color of the foil they chose.  Torching the foil causes color changes that are unpredictable.  I started with green foil which goes through a blue stage as it is heated.

I've got to try torching foil and things you make it sound so intriguing and the resulting creations are fantastic. I love this piece, the rhythm of the waves and the treasures it brings to the soul are reflected perfectly in this piece. I'm thinking you might have another great start to a series :-)
