10" x 8" Original oil painting by Pat Cross entitled Making a Splash now available at UGallery.com
A lively summer brook skips downstream and leaps into a deeper pool making a splash heard beyond the banks. The sound catches the ear of anyone on the trail seeking cheerful refreshment.
In this painting, the artist layered glazes of oil paint to add luminance to the colors. Some areas are carefully blended while others are applied with a painting knife to set in contrast the rich texture.
Painted on a 10" x 8" gallery wrap canvas, the water flows around the 1.5" deep edge and adds more dimension to the piece, appealing to anyone who also appreciates sculpture. This piece is wired and ready to hang in a favored nook, but also perches well on any mantle, shelf, credenza or desk. All materials in this oil painting are of archival quality for lasting impressions.
One of a series of award-winning oil paintings on natural water currents by Pat Cross.
