David Bez - 'Sunset'

Painting with mount (unframed)

'Sunset' glows with earthy tones. Tangled undergrowth and a singular tree are silhouetted against an evening sky.

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.
