Painted the sides (and the back).
Walking through thrift stores and sale isles at different outlets, I keep my eyes open for anything made out of wood. It makes a great base for the effect of transparent water and sand. Most items have to be cleaned and/or sanded before they can be primed and painted. I use a clear primer where I want the wood to show through and white where I want bright colors. (Used both for this one, plus a primer for metal on the sailboat.)
This piece caught my attention because I liked the sailboat and because I had painted a coat hanger that said 'relax' in sunset colors which turned out awesome!
I chose this color scheme for something a little different, plus these are my favorite hues!
- Exclusive, original art
- Acrylic on wood
- 22L x 3W x 6H inches
- Sides and back are painted and sealed with professional materials
