Beyond the confines


beyond the confinesLR

Beyond the confines lies a land of wonderment, joy and beauty. That’s the essence of this mixed media painting, an interplay of charcoal, graphite, ink, acrylic paint on archival gsm 140 wt. paper.

Original for sale through me here at a discount or assorted “merch” can be had in this via online galleries Fine Art America and Saatchi.

In terms of process, this one evolved over a few months. I’d work a layer, set it aside, mull it over for a while, then come back to it. I think I like the sgrafitto in contrast to the flowing, meandering pigment below and obviously, that’s what gave rise to the title of this one.  I also love the push-pull and contrast of the cool/warm and light/dark. More than anything else, though, I love the minimalist bent of this, and the use of very few colors, while blending wet into wet for tonal variations.

Do you like this style? I have a few more works in the red / white / black minimalist vein, a couple of which you can check out in the Browse & Buy tab above or here.

About Maura Satchell, writer and artist

Novelist, artist, seeker. Curious to a fault, I rarely say no to an adventure and that gift has led me on some heart-stirring journeys. I regret nothing.
