Original oil painting on canvas
#4 is an original oil painting on canvas by Rochelle Mason and is based on the Gaboon viper. The painting dimensions are 24 inches (61 cm) high by 48 inches (122 cm) long on 3/4" stretcher bars. The painting is protected with 3 coats of satin UV-protection, archival varnish. Your unframed, original painting will be shipped flat via FedEx when payment clears. Please contact the artist with any questions.
Instead of creating a flowing piece, this painting adopts a linear design. It seems quite simple to me and the soft colors feel soothing to the eye. This is a beautiful snake with a striking pattern of browns, creams and off-whites, but I chose to use the softer colors of blues, greens and off-whites. Depth was created using thinner (top) and wider (bottom) brush strokes. I believe the linear design appeals to those who prefer something more "concrete", something the brain can better relate to.
