Ebb And Flow (diptych) by Wendy Sinclairs Art

ARTIST NOTES: “Ebb and Flow”- Diptych This was a fun piece, a Diptych so I had to remember to make each side balanced with colour, light, dark etc. I started with lots of mark-making and some darkness to provide depth. I then chose Blue Turquoise, Magenta and Metallic Green with Black and White. My aim was to provide luminosity with layers of colour glazes. I finished with groups of small dots to add more colour variety and interest. Completed 28.8.20 Size: 30cm x 40cm each board Surface: 2 x Artists’ Cradled Board Medium: Mixed Media (acrylics, Stabilo Woody wax water-soluble pencils)

ARTIST BIO

I began my creative journey in 2013 while caring for my parents. I needed an outlet and art became a daily chance to try new things and express my creative voice.

My love of nature and landscape are conveyed in my art, especially the colours and sights seen travelling & living in Canada, Qld, NT, Vic, and NSW.

I love to paint with acrylics (often with impasto techniques), acrylic inks, soft pastels, colour and pastel pencils, mixed media and occasionally oils. I love bold, vibrant colour and texture, lots of texture!

I am also a keen photographer and love taking photos of places, flowers, trees, animals – anything that is colourful and catches my eye as a possible painting reference photo!
