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.

Courier fee: Please note that the courier fee is not included in the price or at checkout, arrangement will be made with the buyer after painting has been sold.
