"Ice pieces in water "
40 * 60 cm (16 * 24 inches)

Acrylic on canvas/2023

This painting presents a vivid landscape where the interplay of light and shadow creates a dynamic contrast. The sky is rendered with metallic and pearlescent hues, adding a shimmering quality to the backdrop. The trees, tinged with autumnal colors, stand stark against the cool blue of the sky. In the foreground, the water reflects the scene above with a glassy tranquility, while chunks of ice float, painted with a thick impasto technique that gives them a heavy, three-dimensional appearance. The artist has skillfully used extra heavy body paint to create a sense of depth and volume, particularly noticeable in the textures of the ice and the dense foliage. The overall effect is one of serene beauty, juxtaposed with the tactile richness of the natural elements.
