florida nights abstact oil painting by peter orange 2020

Oil Painting (2020) 

This abstract piece is inspired from a photo I took on a family holiday in Florida in 2015. The motion blur aspect is entirely accidental and one might overlook an image like this - but for me it captured the mood in the colours of the place and time of day, and captures feeling in the energy of the motion and colours. I felt this was perfect to translate into a sizeable painting to achieve the impact it deserves and to evoke those same feelings.

The painting is constructed with the aim of being true to the original image, yet with use of texture and marks add a more tangible feeling to the image to be enjoyed.
