Morning Rain, Astorga, Spain
The original oil painting is painted on hand-stretched cotton canvas, 24″x36″. My palette knife impasto painting technique creates a lively textured surface, with really thick paint. The original is no longer available.
My family and I spent a couple of weeks in northern Spain in the summer if 2013. I was captured by the old stone buildings, the lack of straightness of any street, and the way a wet morning would intensely reflect the brightness of the sun duplicate the environment. Sometimes we would just wander around Astorga and watch the people as they walked by. The Spanish people dress and walk with such pride and dignity, it was really captivating.
My original custom giclée paper prints are produced on archival quality fine art papers that are 100% cotton, with a distinctive textured surface and heavy weight.
Custom prints on canvas add an extra level of authenticity. I personally hand-retouch all my canvas prints with a special surface texture that adds additional gloss and recreates the texture present in the original oil painting back into the print. Other custom print options are also available. Contact me directly to discuss before purchasing!
