Acrylic painting Huile sur Toile by John Hovig

Huile sur Toile

acrylic and silkscreen on linen
46 x 32 inches

A bicycle wheel, a "fountain" and a French-English pun in the title. You do the math. This painting uses only the seven colors of the rainbow. The intermediate hues emerge by layering the transparent paints in pre-planned ways, sometimes complementary, sometimes opposing. Rainbow-colored glitches rain over the surface.
