Oil painting It Begins by David Neace

It Begins

24" x 30" Acrylic on Mat Board

This work was done in the 80's during my airbrush days. It is a stylized representation of a volcano erupting. I used the airbrush for the background and general color, then used thinned acrylic colors to give the boiling effect to the water and lava.

I wanted to do this as variation of the minimalist style. Bold colors to reflect the intensity of mother earth, large rocks flying being flung into the distance, tsunami waves ready to crash into the lands.
