Corona, abstract art by Amy Crook

Corona, 8″x8″ ink wash and watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Like the inverse of a sun in eclipse, this dark corona shines out of a golden disk, creating an image almost like a crown of thorns or a winter wreath.

The rich golden hues are hard to reproduce, but they make a striking contrast to the dark, opaque black.

This piece looks amazing in a dark, wide frame, contemporary and dramatic, a perfect painting for a spot that needs a statement.

Above, you can see the rich golden-yellow background, and the darkness of the black brushstrokes creating the strange halo. It’s been put in a beautiful frame below, striking and elegant.
