Going with the Flow

Emerald explorations are emerging... as a juicy pallet of greens (with infusions of blue and amber ) keeps flowing on my worktable this week. Here are a few detail images of what’s taking shape in the studio...  

 detail...working with a few new techniques for this effect


In this photo you can get a sense for the visual flow that's happening.


Had to show you the close-up details on this one because the size, about  24" x 80 ", makes it a challenge to capture the richness of the surface.

Another little wax paper experiment...back lit with day light. 
Several more works-in-progress are heating up now and this larger emerald piece should be done soon. I will share more images when these are ready.
