This piece emerged after a trip to visit the amazing caves of Las Grutas del Aguila in western Spain. Whilst not intentionally thinking of the rock formations seen earlier in the week, the influence of the dripping stalactites and stalagmites was evident.
This original painting uses a unique combination of gold leaf, acrylic and watercolour paints and pastels on a gallery wrapped canvas. It is protected from dust and UV light by a thin layer of varnish. The painting continues around the sides of the canvas, giving this artwork a unique, contemporary finish. Framing is not required.
