Mixed Media Abstract Art "BADLANDS" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art
This artwork, titled "Badlands," is a 24 x 24 mixed media piece that showcases a rich texture and three-dimensional feel. The colors transition through earthy tones of brown, orange, gold, and charcoal, with a striking stripe of bright blue cutting across the darker shades.
The paint application varies, ranging from smooth washes to dense, opaque areas. The composition and color palette might suggest a natural landscape, reminiscent of arid terrain, rocky outcrops, or a geological cross-section. The bold contrast and dynamic forms engage the viewer's imagination to interpret the scene, creating an emotional or visceral response. The artwork is inspired by desert badlands and salt flats, and its heavily textured surface adds a unique and captivating element.
