“Double Take”


Title: Double Take
Size: 19" x 32"
Medium: wax pastel (Neocolor)
Surface: canvas mounted on board
TechniqueIcarus Painting Board

This artwork is the first of a new series that focuses on a submerged group of pebbles and their reflections under the water surface. I'm completely fascinated by this phenomenon which conveys a feeling of altered reality. 

It takes a lot of time and preparation to capture beautiful reflections. After hundreds of photos, if I'm lucky, I come up with one or maybe two that work. 

The interplay between realism and abstraction is an endless source of inspiration for me.

 

Step 6 - Framing the Artwork

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic my framer has been closed and I haven't been able to frame "Good Vibrations" yet. Because of its complexity, this artwork needs a very simple floater frame. I'm thinking of ordering one online if I can't contact my framer soon.

Step 1: before varnishing

Step 2: sealing the artwork

Step 3: mounting the artwork on a panel

Step 4: digital capture of the artwork

Step 5: applying the final varnish
