Description:I've painted another colorful Pop Art style landscape scene. This one is a helicopter flying just above the trees as seen on one of my many long walks. Created in the vibrant colors of pink, purple, green, yellow, blue and orange. Although strongly influenced by David Hockney, I've crossed the boundaries and gone out beyond the usual, breaking all the rules in my own unique style.
The painting is done in professional quality acrylic and stretched on premium canvas. It measures 30 x 40 x 1.5 inches with neatly painted edges, unframed and ships stretched and ready to hang on the wall with all hanging hardware attached.
