This painting is inspired by the feeling one gets when reading. Focus was placed on expressing a sense of magical surrealism and a feeling of fantasy as the book comes to life. First charcoal was painted onto the high quality canvas to create a realistic looking feminine hand holding a book open and some butterflies. Various blue acrylics were used for the butterfly wings and dots, splashes and light orbs.
This artwork is ready to hang straight out of the box. The high quality canvas has white sides and creates a strong shadow with the 4cm (1.5?) thick edging- making it suitable for dark and light wall shades. All art is sealed with high quality charcoal and acrylic fixatives and includes a signed certificate of authenticity.
