Original painting, signed by Sofia Roe, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.


Thing of Beauty presents distinctive features of prehistoric animals with energetic flashes of gold. I am fascinated by prehistoric animals as they are a gateway into looking at some of the animals we share the planet with today, and because they are their ancestors.


This is a truly stunning painting produced using an acrylic paint pouring technique. Acrylic paint is combined with a pouring medium, silicone and water. The different paint colours are then poured into each other and disseminated by tilting the painting surface. For this particular painting, I then manipulated the fluid paint into thorny animal shapes using a variety of tools. Once dried, I added strips of gold leaf, and three layers of gloss varnish spray.


Although this method of painting is fairly technical and a little messy, the results speak for themselves! I only use the best of art materials such as This Little Piggy (TLP) pigments, and DecoArt, Pebeo and Arteza paints; Liquitex and Floetrol pouring mediums; and Liquitex and Pebeo silicone oil.
