Porthole by Nicole Cote
To boldly go where no one has gone before-
I have a fascination with space and the celestial – planets, stars, lunar bodies, (Star Trek.. cough).
This painting is an original acrylic painting of a reddish/purple planet on a celestial background, framed with white.
Measures 9 inches by 12 inches.
The planet is detailed by outlining the random curls and tendrils of the ink as it is applied to paper. An art teacher told me that you can’t fight the ink- It has a mind of it’s own. In my art, I choose to celebrate this and to accentuate the beauty of the ink with outlining.
Ingredients: India Ink, High-flow acrylics, gesso (as paint), acrylic paint, ballpoint pen
