|A Clutter of Kayaks by April M Rimpo|
These kind of moments, when people are out enjoying their environment, always speak to me. After selecting sections from a variety of my photos from that day, I composed this painting, included some of the sailboats in the distance that were also on the water. Then I decided on a color scheme I felt would feature the kayaks while also making them at home in their surroundings.
A Clutter of Kayaks
20" X 36" fluid acrylic on
Gallery Wrapped and Varnished Paper
This painting is done in fluid acrylic on watercolor paper, then gallery wrapped around a 1.75" stretcher, and varnished to provide UV protection and to seal the paper from its surroundings. Because the paint wraps around the edge of the stretcher bars it can be hung without a frame, if desired.
