Danshui Sunset

Danshui Sunset, Fiona's Birthday present, 10:15

Acrylic on Canvas, 45.5 x 38 cm, 04/10/2015

This painting was done as a gift for my wife’s birthday. It is inspired by the beautiful sunsets that can be seen in the riverside town of Danshui, New Taipei City, Taiwan. I wanted to experiment and paint more loosely and freely with thick paint and strong colours in this picture. To do this I first used a brush to apply paint thinly and gradually built it up with a palette knife to add the thicker paint.
