After beating the crap out of myself, in a good way, at the gym, I spent today painting the four little Clusters that I picked up from the workshop this week.
In brief: 4 layers of gesso primer - the resin they're made out of is thirsty. 1 thin yellow wash. 3 texturizing layers with sucessive addition of brown. 1 thin dark brown wash. 1 coat metallic gold paint.
I saved a link to this but never remembered to come back--I like these shots, too! The colour layers are gorgeous & I appreciate the care taken to give us visually stimulating shots... *also yoinking* ;)
*checks out exhibit link* I have a half dozen geeks of all ages in my family that would consider that the coolest. exhibit. EVER.
