Interference Paint Effect

Frontal View

Angled View
The light changed between these shots, so the one on the right is darker (a storm blew in), but you can see the window panes are distinctly different colors, the one on the right glowing, and the serpent is brighter gold in some areas. The Eagle Man, Garuda, is also shinier looking. These are all effects produced by the use of interference pigments. They add a bit of mystery to a painting. This one is very close to being finished now.

Please forgive my wonky photos. If I used a tripod I would do better!

Patrick Checking a Frame

My son Patrick brought over a lot of 50-year-old fencing cedar, which he used to make frames for my landscapes. They look marvelous!
