Inspired by my holidays up in the Northern Territory in Darwin. We went to Mindil Beach Sunset Markets as they are renowned for tourists and locals gathering to watch the incredible sunset.  The colour just fills the sky and lights up the ocean. It's fascinating to watch as the sky changes colour intensity until the sun eventually sets over the waters horizon to rest for the night.

  • Original Acrylic Painting on Unstretched Canvas.
    By Amber Gittins.
    This painting is available now or email with any enquiries.

    I begin with choosing my colour palette which gives me an insight into the mood of the painting right away. I then start to layer the acrylic paint, more often than not I'm working from left to the right of the canvas. (Some people have commented how unusual this process is, I see it as completely normal). Building up the colours as I go, I use complementary colours to create the depth and contrast to the artwork. I also love to show movement which comes from exaggerating the sweeping movement of the brush as I paint. This forms a lovely organic feel, which enhances my love for depicting nature in my work.

    The painting has been created on artist quality 100% cotton canvas and finished with a double coat of UV resistant gloss varnish, protecting the longevity and enhancing the vibrancy of the colours.

    The sides of the canvas have been painted and is a continuation of the painting, so that the image wraps around the edges once this artwork has been stretched onto a frame.

    This painting will come rolled and unstretched, you will need to take it to your local framers for stretching.

    Your painting will be hand signed on the front and back, with its title written on the rear of the canvas. You will also receive a certificate of authenticity.
