At The Waters Edge VII 12″x12″


Acrylic, watercolor and ink on canvas

A small but dramatic textured acrylic seascape painting on canvas by artist Melissa McKinnon. This original painting was created in Melissa’s signature style with a palette knife and thick impasto texture. However, innovation and experimentation are at the heart of Melissa’s art practice. In this new series of abstracted seascapes she introduced the use of watercolour and fluid inks. In contrast to the deliberate thick layers of impasto paint, these new techniques add a vibrant energy of spontaneity and flow to the paintings further enhancing the wild expression of nature.

The painted image wraps onto the sides of the canvas and arrives ready to hang.

Painted during the writing and creation of her first instructional book “Textured Art – Palette knife and impasto painting techniques in acrylic”. For a limited time, purchase the Collector’s Edition Bundle and receive:
