Description 2008 Acrylic on canvas 40x30Michael Arnold ArtStipe Three is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by artist Michael Arnold. This is the third painting in my Michael Stipe series. I painted the background using a painting knife loaded with modeling paste and a mix of yellow oxide, cadmium yellow medium and buff titanium. I placed lines of red oxide, permanent green light and phthalocyanine blue side by side to build up the various tones for the portrait. I used touches of cadmium yellow light and medium to add some highlights and finished it off with pure yellow oxide to punch up the neutral tones.
Michael Arnold, Dunnellon, Florida Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement "Art for me is a creative release, therefore I have no boundaries in my work. I work on what moves me spiritually, visually and creatively."
I primarily work in acrylics, but have produced works in pastels, graphite, charcoal colored pencils and ink.
I enjoy many different styles including impressionism, pop art, abstract expressionism, naturalism, post-impressionism, art deco and contemporary. All of these styles influence my work, but do not define my style. For complete information visit my website Michael Arnold Art Enjoy my videos Michael Arnold Videos
