David Bez - 'Craggy Island'
8" x 11"
Acrylics with Oil Glaze
'Craggy Island' depicts a sun-cloaked crag below a clearing sky. With warm blues, bronze, and ochre, the painting is filled with atmosphere, as if a storm has just passed, and stillness is resumed in the landscape.
Due to David Bez's experience in glasswork, he utilises a ‘faux vitrail' finishing glaze, a specific type of translucent yet bold glass paint like that found on stained glass. Next, Bez applies oil varnishes and silicates in sections of the painting to cause light to interact with each section differently, which adds depth and luminosity.
