Australian Icon is an original painting by Bonnie Larden. It is painted on a 61cm (24 inches) square cradled wood panel using acrylic paints and glazing liquids. It is protected with a satin varnish. This painting comes with a wire across the back and is ready to hang. Australian Icon is part of Bonnie’s Creatures of Leisure series where she juxtaposes the untamed wild with intentionally designed spaces of leisure. By misplacing these subjects, she creates an element of surprise, with the aim to evoke a sense of imagination and interpretation in the viewer.
I start all my paintings by laying down my foundation colors and textures using pallet knives, acrylic paint, and a heat gun. After applying additional colors and gels on top of my base layers, I scape away and move paint to reveal portions of what is underneath. This is when I begin to add the finer details of the subjects to create a more realistic scene on top of the unintentional marks and intentional smears created in the background. This technique allows for movement and emotion to be found within the painting.
