Description –

Relinquished Light is a major work by Nial Adams. Produced to commission as a ‘Signature Piece’ presented on stretched Irish linen canvas, prepared by the artist.

This imposing artwork represents a vibrant and dramatic sunset over the sea. The brief for this commission required a square canvas, and was to be hung in a large stairwell of a large house in North Norfolk.

The piece took almost one year from concept to completion, with considerable time invested in the preparation of the linen canvas, follow the traditional methods of the Old Masters. The painting also uses a multitude of layers and creates the effects of light through the use of glazes and scumbling. This technique produces deep colours, contrast and depth.

Although produced to commission the artist has retained reproduction rights and, as such, this artwork is available in digital print. These fine art canvas prints are produced to the highest standards, on solid wood stretcher bars, with gallery-wrapped edges.
