"The Cottage" is painted on cotton watercolor paper with acrylic, approx 40 by 60 cm.

I have been making both abstract and figurative paintings, although quite a number of them have a historical origin, this work called "The Cottage" is an abstract work with its origin in a series of mini paintings based on the same subject. The underlying layer is roughly applied, layers of color and a few strokes of red and purple were added and subsequently scraped, rubbed, or treated with alcohol splatter using the emotions I was feeling at the time. Subsequently I applied a few layers of transparent purples, using a negative technique, recreating, out of the chaos, a tranquil environment for myself resulting in a field of flowers and the cottage. 
The painting is executed on 300gsm NOT Fabriano Watercolor Paper, with a layer of gesso.

The painting comes without a frame and will be sent rolled in a tube.
