Costa Rica Falls with Fox
About this artwork
Tara's reference photo was a view of a waterfall in a lush forest in Costa Rica. She combined this with the vertical aesthetic of traditional Japanese landscape prints, and painted in her signature fox. The painting was glazed in a high gloss finish, making the rich oil colors appear wet and giving the surface an enamel like finish reminiscent of an Asian lacquered screen. The peach-orange hue of the underpainting wraps around the gallery wrapped edges.
