In painting, Impasto (Italian for dough) describes highly textured areas of the surface of a painting which are heavily built up with paint layers. Palette knife marks are clearly in evidence. I used very bold and heavy abstract paint so each colour really lifts off the canvas giving a 3D effect that is lovely to touch as well as to view.
Why not add floral artwork to your home or office. It’s also the perfect gift for your loved ones, relatives, and friends. I never paint the same painting twice, so you will have a one-of-a-kind original painting.

About The Artist
When I see a canvas, I never get artist's block, I see my next great adventure starting. I'm on a journey without a plan that is constantly evolving. Each brush or palette knife stroke turns into something wonderful that eventually turns into a painting. That Is true art to me, rather than planning every step of the way, but who am I to say?
I am new to painting compared to many other artists and totally self-taught. I never studied at art school and have no art qualifications, but does that make my art unworthy? Can I even call myself an artist? I guess we all have to start somewhere but at least I'm honest enough to admit it and still place great love and passion into every painting I paint.
I have used every painting medium available but found my true love in acrylics. I started painting all sorts of things including trees, waterfalls, fields, sunsets etc. until my wife asked me to paint her a flower painting.
"Paint flowers!" I said, but I gave it a go, and surprisingly my wife was pleased. Since then, I have developed a unique way of painting flowers which I absolutely love. I mix my own heavy-bodied abstract paint and paint Impasto-style impressionist flowers.
