Canvas painting featuring a cityscape, giving a vibrant and dynamic impression of life in the metropolis of New York, designed to contribute an international atmosphere to any room. The detailed composition provides plenty of visual impressions, sparking curiosity about what the painting depicts and how it is interpreted.
The production of the painting follows a traditional method, encompassing seven different stages. The first step involves applying a base color to the canvas, which is varied in different shades. The motif and shadows are then sketched out using various stroke styles, using drawing tools such as chalk and markers. The paint is applied in four layers, alternating the use of transparent and opaque colors. The four layers create depth and intricate details in the motif. After the motif itself is completed, fine details and nuances are added to finish the work. Once the drying of the painting is complete, two layers of varnish are applied to protect the colors from UV rays and ease cleaning.
The materials used to create the painting are all exceptionally high quality. They were chosen to achieve intense colors, create new nuances, and highlight the depth where the underlying elements and shades are visible. The colors come from manufacturers who primarily use pure pigments in their products. The canvas used is Italian, made of 100% linen, and has a robust weave to bear large amounts of paint. One of the unique features of linen canvas is its light, uneven surface, due to the variation in the thickness of the linen thread, a quality not found in other types of canvas. The frame is made from pine wood sourced from European forests, and it is FSC-certified, guaranteeing sustainable forestry.
