Shop Announcement:

Hello and welcome to HRNicholsonart.

My favourite style is abstract as I love the diversity and freedom to create whatever I feel the canvas wants. I have started to do more watercolour landscapes and flowers as well as creating drawings using pen and watercolour, pen and ink and also charcoal.

In my shop you will find a wide variety of paintings and drawings as well as some cards printed from my original drawings.

If you have any questions regarding any of my creations please get in touch via the contact page and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you for visiting HRNicholsonart

Original abstract acrylic painting on canvas.

Title: Handshake before battle

Size: 23.5 x 16.5 inches

This painting was created using a couple of different sized palette knives. I did not have any notion of how this painting would turn out, I only knew that I wanted to use black, red and white paint. When I paint abstract the feeling takes over and I put colours where I feel they need to go. Once I had finished it seemed to me that there were two strange figures shaking hands and a battle about to commence.

The canvas has not been framed but the outer rim is painted black so it can be hung without a frame.

Hanging fixtures are not included.

I will post second class signed for within three working days of payment.
