BlueBottles in Black – Painting
Artist: Jan Cilliers de Wet
Oil on canvas over marine ply.
122cm x 70cm.
An exercise in monochrome, with hints of burnt sienna, green and crimson.
It’s based on a gathering of bluebottles seen from the water surface level, but as always there’s a degree of play in the brushwork.
It looks much like brush and ink but is in fact a loose inky oil paint applied with liberal use of turpentine and carefully orchestrated abandon.
