Using a limited palette, and mixing right on the surface of the canvas, was a great way to create this playful, improvised piece. Longing for the colors of the seawater, this piece is done with acrylic and a lot of water to push and pull tonal changes. 

The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Anne

Born in New York and raised in Connecticut, Anne Dosso-Powell is the daughter of a jazz drummer and the granddaughter of a Radio City Music Hall conductor. The result: art and music have always been at the forefront of her academic and creative endeavors. Anne’s emotionally driven paintings use color, texture, transparency and distortion to express a spectrum of feelings and concepts. Embracing a variance of styles, her work fluctuates between abstract expressionism to delicate impressionistic realism. She also uses exaggeration, and some primitivism in her work. Most of her paintings have a combination of styles, best described as an improvisation if you will.
