Mixed Media with Copper

16" x 12" x 1.5" Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas
- ebony edge

Value $450
Current Bid $35

This is one of my favourite pieces this year. It has a changing character because it can be displayed any way up and the copper paint catches the light in different ways. I also love the colour scheme and those dots and swirls add a natural feel to the whole. I really want this one to go to a good home.


One day, I was pondering a thank you gift for my loyal fans and patrons to thank them for their support this year. I was curating my new studio/gallery and with space at a premium I was inspired by a thought... Why not offer paintings from my personal collection and my selected works through a low start silent auction?

SUNLIGHT THROUGH TREES by Sea Dean after Ann Willsie
Sunlight Through Trees by Sea Dean

This is my first oil painting in over 10 years. I attended an oil painting demo by Ann Willsie today, with emphasis on negative painting wet in wet. She started under-painting with burnt sienna and then moved from darks to lights and back to mid tones. 

I've been intending returning to oil for a while, but layering oil over acrylic, so I thought I would play with negative painting and my water soluble oils, but with acrylic under-painting. I found this quite engrossing and much easier than working with acrylic. For collectors, this would be a great investment because it marks my return to oil and firsts always increase in value quicker. Purchase through DPW.

The bottom image is more accurate colour and value but it had shine at the top. The top image doesn't show the liveliness and the brighter yellow of the sunshine.
