2008 Acrylic on canvas 30 x 40 inches “Man in Blue, Green and Yellow” is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by Citrus County Florida Artist Michael Arnold. "My inspiration for this painting came from a series of sketches I made in my figure drawing class. This particular subject posed in various “moody” setups and I decided to recreate the sketches into a pop art painting. The modern, abstract feel of the painting is enhanced by it's simple geometric lines and a bold color palette. The finished artwork is a far cry from my original thumbnails and sketches I put together for the painting. The composition is basically the same, but I went through about four different color schemes, constantly tweaking the various tones of the colors. Nothing seemed to work until I finally added the bold, black outlines that seemed to pull the whole thing together for me". "Man in Blue Green and Yellow" is on a quality gallery wrapped canvas. All sides are painted with no staples showing. The Michael Arnold original acrylic painting on canvas is ready to be hung and can be displayed with or without a frame. Each painting by award winning Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold is an original one of a kind signed piece of art and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The over-sized acrylic painting is delivered on a stretched canvas. Be sure to look at the additional views to truly capture the vibrant color tones of the painting. "Man in Blue Green and Yellow" canvas painting makes a bold statement on any wall where it is displayed. "Man in Blue Green and Yellow" is also available as the front of note cards and the prints can be purchased here.
