This painting was a demo piece at a recent workshop. I think it's obvious, even in a photo, how much texture the painting has. The texture is a combination of stenciled modeling compound and prepared tyvek.
After the photo was taken, I added a thick layer of clear epoxy resin, enhancing the color richness and adding to the illusion that you are looking down through water.
