Acrylic on Canvas
In this painting the subject is insignificant. I was interested in exploring the concepts of shape, color and texture. I became fascinated with texture when I observed the various barks on trees such as found on the pine and cypress. I began this painting by covering it with a heavy layer of modeling paste. I then proceeded by carving little marks into the paste with the handle of a brush. After the paste dried it was time to think about color and shapes. There are several layers of color which allowed a little of each layer to become visible. The colors were applied intuitively while I arranged and rearranged shapes and color until I was satisfied that I had reached my goal. The time I spent with this project led me to a fun and enjoyable experience and the desire to try again using a palette of different colors and different shapes.

Acrylic & Metallic Ink
Breathtaking natural beauty of Brazil is defined in Brazilian Waterfall. The original acrylic painting was created within the OCEANS series by Julia Ross, to showcase the beauty our oceans bring to villages across the world. Layers of pastel color and metallic elements combine to relay a calm mist of water falling into a lagoon.
