"DIAMOND MINE" 11017 mixed media geologic abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"DIAMOND MINE"


detail


side

The composition for this geologic abstract is cruciform - the design I choose most frequently.  You can see the large amount of texture on this piece - especially the little raised cubes which have silver leaf on top of them.  I meticulously added the silver leaf adhesive with a small applicator to each cube.


This painting has a lot of metallic paint, giving it a soft glow that doesn't photograph very well.  For purchase information, click here to go to my website.

Hi I really like the fluidity and when you discover the concept the thin texture,structure and detail is, to me, recognisable as 'thorns' or 'veins' entangled, with a solid core. It is evident in your work that you enjoy experimenting with the application and materials which results in beautiful contrasting colours within an exploration of a mixed media composition, which is an exciting experience to view!
