Rushing Rainbow

RushingRainbow_Schlaff700  Rushing Rainbow, 45″ x 60″, oil paint on canvas.  Available at KLK Art & Design Gallery

This is Becca’s latest oil painting to be released from the studio.  Energy and motion abound in this painting.  Using the rainbow trout as reference (thank you to Alaska Fly Anglers, see photo below) a play on fragmentation and focus became paramount to achieve balance in this work.  The spontaneity and transparency of loose layers of paint conveyed the feeling of looking through water, while the presence of the rainbow trout body provides an overall feeling of strength.  There is a sense of both feeling such a powerful fish in your hands and also the moment you let go…and see it swim away.  AFA rainbow source pic  Source photo courtesy of Alaska Fly Anglers
