Recently I joined the Surreal Harmony Art Collective on Instagram. We are a group of contemporary artists, who focus on making popsurreal drawings and paintings. With now and then a nice auction...
Surreal Harmony Art Collective
This Instagram community's purpose is to promote its members. By posting regularly, and by organizing periodical auctions. The theme for the December auction was Winter Wonders.
A wide concept, but of course that only adds to the fun of it. Because this resulted in a wide range of paintings and subjects. Some took the theme very literally, other's gave it a Christmasy feel, and I chose to create Fire and Ice.
Contrast is something I often use in my work. Especially when it comes to color. I like using contrasting, or complementary colors in my artwork. This is a simple way of creating a strong image.
For Fire and Ice not only did I use contrasting colors, but also contrasting elements. Here's the icy fairy, and there's the fiery dragon.
The auction has ended successfully, with my Fire and Ice painting now being on its way to its new owner in England. On to the next auction!
Created with acrylic paint on masonite. Size 12,7 x 12,7cm.
