Today I finished up the second piece in the ice painting series. Click on thumbnail below to see a larger image.
Untitled (Ice Painting II) 2009
24″ x 24″ oil and oil bar on panel
If you have been following the creation of this series, you will notice how the original composition and vibrant colors are now buried beneath translucent, semi-opaque and opaque layers of paint.
As I painted each layer, I worked in more detail, representing all of the bits of debris encased in the layers of ice. Looking at these close up, you may be able to see the tiny dots, and semi-sheer grid pattern.
These are heavily painted pieces, however, there are areas laid bare to the first layer.
