This geologic abstract touches on a cool palette that I don't use very often, but I really like the combination of the blues and the browns. It is more fun than you can imagine to let the colors flow together and have complete freedom in mixing the colors as I choose. It's why these abstracts are such a kick for me.
I tried something new in coming up with this composition. I brushed on some watered down colors onto the canvas, then covered it with the clear plastic that the canvas came wrapped in (making use of something I would have discarded.)
Lifting up the edges of the plastic, I squirted in more water causing the colors to flow into the wrinkles and crevasses in the plastic. When the plastic was removed later, there was an abstract flow pattern you can see in the finished work.
As with other paintings in this series, the metal foils and areas of soft metallic sheen are not picked up well by the camera, making the original a more dynamic, exciting piece than what you see here.
