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


Vessels of the Ocean conveys an important environmental message. The deep blue colours represent the ocean which is being degraded by harmful human activities represented by the central stencilling and bands of gold leaf. I often use gold to represent my empathy with the natural world.


In addition to being a thought-provoking piece, it is a truly stunning painting produced using an acrylic paint pouring technique. The different paint colours are poured into each other and dispersed by tilting the painting surface. 


As can be seen in this painting, cells have formed by mixing the acrylic paint with a pouring medium, silicone oil and water. The number of cells that appear and the size of the cells are largely determined by the difference in the densities of the colors. Once dried, I sealed the painting with three layers of gloss varnish.


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.
