Hurricane Irma and Jose

Hurricane Irma and Jose

Acrylic on Canvas board, 14 x 28 inches.

I had just finished an art project painting Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh in an online course with Ginger Cook, and had also painted four acrylics showing what happened to people in Houston in aftermath of Harvey.

In doing some research on the internet about the winds associated with hurricanes, I came across some work that used photos from NASA to show just how far reaching and powerful the winds of hurricanes are.  The patterns I found on the Internet were striking in that I had just completed the van Gogh painting with Ginger Cook.

I painted the land using a black acrylic paint right out of the tube, and then painted in the eye of each hurricane (light blue), and then used different shades of blue to show the pattern of air flow around the eyes of each hurricane.  The final step was to give the painting some texture and I used Ginger Cooks suggestion and use a very liberal layer of super heavy gel, which when dry is clear.

Here are some of the underpaintings.
