This painting shows the Holy Spirit as part of the creative act of creation: “The Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” Genesis 1 : 2
He is hovering over the waters, before light is created. I wanted to convey the darkness but wanted to portray it as a darkness of richness and energy.
I used a palette knife to apply layers of phthalo green, quinacridone magenta, cobalt and coeruleum blue, before covering those with repeated layers of semi-transparent cobalt.
The symbolic dove of the Holy Spirit appears smooth and sleek against the background.
“Genesis” is one painting in a series about the work of the Holy Spirit, some of which are still to be painted!
The painting is oil on canvas, 16″ by 20″, and costs £500, which includes delivery in the UK.
