“Moose in Snow Sunset” acrylic on canvas, 47 x 71 inches. After spending time as a purple and gold abstract action painting, this piece showed me space for moose family in a winter sunset.
A moose mother and calf, painted in warm sienna and yellow ochre, emerge out of a purple abstract painting with dripping green trees in a yellow sunset and realistic snow in the foreground. Painting just enough of an animal in acrylic over an abstract background can look stunning.
A close up of the mother, or cow, moose reveals her warm sienna and yellow ochre acrylic colors on a cool purple and blue background. My favourite part of this painting are the light blue abstract splatters behind her transparent neck and shoulders.
I painted a bull moose in the foreground of this acrylic abstract wildlife painting in a way that only partially filled in the animal, leaving part of the abstract dripping background. The antlers were fun to create: I outlined them with white, red and green china markers before adding line work in paint.
Acrylic gold, yellow and ochre are splashed over purples and blues on the canvas to form a landscape sunset painting. The illuminating colors of the sky make for an abstract luminism painting.
