My piece 'Sea Foam Siphon' is a detailed acrylic swipe two layers. The base layers is done with a dark purple and light purple with dark brown around the edges of the canvas. Silicon oils were added creating hundreds of dark purple bubbles that sink into the background. Next a green, teal, light blue, white and a small amount of shimmering gold was placed perpendicular to the background to make these bright colors pop! The white in the middle really extenuates the bubbles and adds a third level to the painting.
I constructed Sea Foam Siphon's frame with .75 inch spacing encompassing the work with a dark walnut stained frame giving a dark classy mood to this bright artwork. Lastly I hand painted the side of the canvas and the inside of the frame to make a clean crisp look that compliments each other against the wall.
