New painting 'Peace at Hand' 18" x 24" Acrylic Painting on Canvas available now at my store.
I wanted to finally make a legitimate painting based on the sticker design as well as the image that I had used countless times on social media to show support for people suffering from the chaos happening in various countries. The two finger peace design is an iconic one to be sure, and I wanted to put my own spin on it with the colorful drips I am known to use in my work.
I wanted to amp up the realism on this one so I decided to use jewel-like transparent neon colors layered on top of a detailed shaded monochrome under-painting. This is a bit of a process, but well worth it when the details pop just as much as the color. There's a lot of little details throughout that you don't always see at first glance.
The raised glossy texture stands out from the white background adding even more depth to the overall design.
