A Study in Green by alicub A Study in Green by alicub
Artist ~ Alison Butler
Size ~ 9" x 12" (229mm x 305mm)
Medium ~ Acrylic paint on canvas board.
Other info ~ This piece is signed, titled and dated on the reverse. The painting is supplied unframed and unmounted.


Through my art work I like to play with paint using it to explore depth and perspective. I enjoy using different layers of paint and then lifting/scraping away to reveal what’s underneath. I like the viewers eye to move frantically through my work as different colours and layers reveal themselves, light jumping out from behind dark, etc.

The colours in this piece were inspired simply from an afternoon in the garden looking at the light dancing on blades of uncut grass.........really should mow the lawn more often!

NICE!
you've got great colors here.
but you know what would really make this painting outstanding, is if you included some sort of warm tones. like for example, mixing a tad of red with that yellow in some areas, to bring about contrast.
i'm not saying change it, it looks like a finished piece, just maybe something to think about for future paintings.
but seriously, i LOVE the forms youve made, and youve brought about a pattern-like field of forms and color. sorry to be a d*ck about the color, i'm just obsessed with full color.
