That's very calming and beautiful. It reminds me of my sand art ..... That's very addictive!
Nice painting.

A Somewhat Abstract Aussie Summer

The initial sketch redone as an Acrylics on 900mm x 600mm MDF panel.

Uluru is now about 2cm thick. Heaps of texture, sand in the red ochre and shoreline. Lots of Impasto gel. Will look good after varnishing. Still have to wait for the rock to dry... Unfortunately the image doesn't show the ocean up very well. Using the Matisse Structure paint I use with a hogs hair brush, gives it a really wavy when the light catches it.

My little niece will probably want to get her hands on it to touch it...

I think the final result isn't too shabby.

Let me know how you think it turned out.

Thanks Zayn. The image doesn't really seem to pack the same punch as the actual painting.

You can certainly tell the texture of the smoke, but there's a heap in the Sun, Uluru and the Sea and the outback is really rough.

Oh well, can't do any better than the technology will allow I guess.

Batman.

ps, by the way, it's only the 4th day of summer and we are expecting a 39 degree day here in Brisbane :sweat: . So this is really what it is going to be like today!

Glad you went big on this Batman!! :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Just love it, actually I was suprised at how much texture I could see in the pic, so the real life is even awesomer! :o
Cool. 8)  One day I will see it in person in the famous Batman Gallery.

are you going to sell this or is it just for your own collection Batman?

Hi Nolan

I'd sell it if someone wanted to buy it. No great attachments to it. But for now, after it is varnished I will make up a frame and it will find a home in the spare bedroom. Not paying someone to frame it to hang on my own wall. I was thinking just a simple black pine frame an inch and a half thick around it.

It will need a frame because it's only on a gessoed MDF panel. I did it due to the rock projecting about 2cm out the front at the bulging points of it.

I haven't varnished it yet (waiting for the Modelling Paste to set properly), so if there are any suggestions for improvement...

Batman.
p.s. Have started on something from the 2nd Visualising Abstracts lesson, taking a photo of a pomegranate and doing on the same sized MDF. This time the MDF is actually mounted onto Pine framing, to make it look like a double thick canvas.  I have the finalised design done, in Photoshop and then run through Fotosketcher, but it's been a bit hot the last 5 or 6 days to pull the acrylics out during the day...

Just a question. Did you seal your mdf panel?
