A beautiful depiction of the legendary Ipanema Beach in Rio, Brazil, done by the artist Parvez Taj. Taj created this water-based painting working from one of his photographs. He mixed softly contrasting colors with a sponge to achieve the effects of light. The blended photograph and painting was then printed on canvas. This work is made with eco-friendly, solvent-free ink, and the image will not crack, flake, or fade. It is hand-signed by the artist and features a bio on the back.
