"Concentric Circle 2"
This original piece of my own design is free hand drawn and painted.
The pattern is inspired from concentric circles in maths. Concentric circles are simply circles that all have the same center. They fit inside each other and are the same distance apart all the way around. In the figure above, resize either circle by dragging an orange dot and see that they both always have a common center point.
Created using 18 carat (genuine) gold, watercolour, gouache and acrylics on paperboard.
The size of the painting is approx. 50x50 cm.
This symmetrical art type is called "Tezhip" illumination which means ornamenting with gold, hence gold is one of the main material used in my paintings.
The gold is burnished in a way as to give a beautiful shine which catches the light in different ways throughout the day illuminating the pattern almost giving it life.
Please note the colour may vary slightly due to the nature of photography.
