St. Michael’s, Kyiv by JoAnn Z Bland
Size 8″ x 10″. Original Acrylic Painting on Gallery Wrapped Canvas.
There’s a stark contrast among Impressionism, black and white photography, surrealism, and architectural blueprints. What happens when you try to combine all?
I like to experiment with all the concepts. As I begin I start with watered down acrylic as a base and background. Sometimes I start with texture medium. I then add layers of heavy acrylic texture for depth, and as a finishing touch I bring out the highlights and extend with lines in metallic or charcoal which would remind the observer of the sketch lines. It’s all about combining the known with unexpected.
