This is precisely the canvas painting I'd wanted.... but ordering strictly from an online picture is risky! What actually helped me to KNOW that I had to have this painting was a NEGATIVE review that someone had written! That person said he'd hoped it would be more "life-like" and not have so much texture and shine. I wanted a long, horizontal, INTERESTING, modern picture to go above our master bed. The acrylic shine is gorgeous!! Colors are true to what you see online. Our walls are grey, and duvet cover is gold. I've used creamy ivories and deep greys in the pillows, and now I'm going to feel free to accessorize just a bit with red... ugh... THAT is going to look great! LOVE this painting!
This piece is very different in the flesh than online. It is VERY VERY high gloss. Shellac? Polyurethane ...? It's VERY VERY glossy. And the red foliage and "tree trunks" are raised ... like thermography printing. It's a much more abstract painting than it appears to be online. This isn't a bad thing for the right application. It worked beautifully for the living room I was decorating which had very modern and mid century details. I was a tad concerned when I took it out of the box though, I was hoping for something a tad more realistic. The homeowner loved it tho. And I must say, it takes on a different feeling depending on the time of day. Because it is so glossy, the light, or lack thereof, hitting it, completely changes the mood.
Like I said above its a lot darker then the online picture and less blue. It has a high gloss finish to it. I don't remember if the site says that or not, but just so you know. Overall its a beautiful piece. I really liked it once I saw it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the site pictures show a lot morw blue than there really is. it's quite a bit darker so you will want to put it in a room that has a lot of light. thats helps bring the color out of it.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the quality is excellent. nothing wrong there
