Tapestry, 9047, mixed media abstract





This painting features several metal elements. Copper, gold and pewter embossing metals were used. There is extensive use of metallic acrylic paints and acrylic modeling compound for texture. Because of the reflective nature of the metal components, photographing this piece proved to be a problem. The colors are somewhere BETWEEN the front view and the side view. Both photos taken with identical lighting, just me moving a few feet to the side for the side view. You can see what a different look the painting has depending on the angle you're viewing it from. It's maddening. For purchase information, please click here for my website.

It might be maddening Carol, but it's certainly a beautiful piece! The metallics are a nightmare for the camera but the human eye loves them.

Carol, this is just stunning!

They do look different on the different shots, but great in all of them! I like your abstracts very much.

Dang girl! These just keep getting more and more gorgeous!

Yes indeed those look challenging to photograph. I suppose you've tried natural light... in direct sunlight and also in indirect light?

Reflections would be hard to avoid in direct light but might give you the color you want. Indirect light (a shaded porch, for example) will shift to blue but maybe you can correct with Photoshop.

Fun paintings, BTW!

Carol!

This painting almost looked like stained wood upon first glance (I think it's because of the coloring).

Another neat abstract!
