Just finished this painting the other morning....I've made a quick video, the painting is titled "Landscape- Releasing the space for liberation," Ingrid Lee 2013. Acrylic on canvas, 122.5/122.5 cm

My focus on this painting has been to use layers and textures to express notions of space.  For example, the transition of yellow to orange reflects the essence of the space- the space required for liberation.  And the use of other acrylic painting techniques express the space in time between the moments of release.  As I discuss on the video, this painting is part of the Destiny and Love theme....the journey of destiny is not finite, but hopefully results in liberation and freedom.  The use of yellow symbolises the state of happiness as a result of this attainment.  Please find out more in the video below 🙂

    It's very nice for an empty wall above the sofa, or next to a large mirror. Wall plaster, or wood, or with warm colors, wonderful. I love it.

      Thanks isa. It is rare that I keep my own paintings, but this one is in our home, and is the focal point for our family and meals areas. We have an open plan kitchen living space, so it adds warmth and calm to a space that is often busy.

    Hey Ingrid, I believe it was VanGogh who expressed that yellow was the color that represented friendship. I myself,find yellow to be a warm,inviting color that calms a mood and invites peace. Yellow is the brightest of the color palette and often unused as much as purple is in landscapes. In several of the homes I have lived and redecorated,the center most room I always painted in a yellow trimmed in white. The most recent was a diningroom with an eastern sunrise window. Much of the colors in your painting were faux finished on discriminent areas to highlight the overall wall. I used more of a rust color than orange as you have. Plus,the walls were textured overall. Thank you for displaying this for us to view and comment. Now...for me to find another room to paint like this!

      Thanks Steve for visiting my site and sharing your applications of yellow. I didn't know that about Van Gogh, but certainly his works have always been a powerful impression for me because of his vibrant use of colours like yellow. Happy painting.
