I had the pleasure of working again with Vancouver’s Insight Design Group on a residential interior art commission. This painting was created for Mosaic Homes’ Cambria Park development on Vancouver’s westside. It was on view at the display home at Cambie and 41st Avenue until the development sold out. Measuring 33.5 x 60 inches, the generous canvas size gave me lots of space to explore the gorgeous colours in the interior design palette.

Design Process

I started with a base of organic shapes from photographs I had taken of interesting local rock formations and foliage. This base composition was then printed with aqueous pigmented inks onto canvas. I subsequently set to work glazing the surface with layer upon layer of semi-transparent colour. Bold brushwork in the lower half of the painting brought a lot of energy to the piece and really added to the strength of the composition.
