Snowy Owl Study (Metal)

Jen Lipski

This portrait was painted onto sheet metal using an acid patina. When the clear acid is applied to the metal, the resulting chemical reaction causes the steel to oxidize and darken. The acid is then quickly washed away between brushstrokes to control the effect and create the image. The reflective surface of the metal will cause this artwork to shine differently under every lighting condition. This piece includes a custom wood frame and is ready to hang (dimensions include frame)
