Orange, Yellow & Green (COLOR STUDY) - 2009

Ingredients: acrylic paint, beach sand, ground glass, phosphorescent pigments, varnish, water & light.

I'm experimenting with some color combinations that I find interesting for some upcoming work. This is one of them.

The high gloss varnish on certain sections of the painting reflect light like stained glass. A light sprinkling of finely ground glass over the top of the painting makes it glimmer and sparkle in the light.

This piece is 5x5 inches on gallery wrapped canvas. (1.5" edge.) The sides are painted black. It is ready to hang as is, or simply stand alone on a desk or shelf! Signed and varnished.

Images to the right are as follows:
1. artificial\/interior lighting
2. natural lighting (near a window)
3. artificial and uv lighting combined
4. uv lighting only (black light)
5. no light (check out that multi-colored glow!)

*These glow for an extremely long time, unlike regular glow paint that fades within minutes. Certain colors will glow for many hours! :o) (Actually, they even glow in the shade or indoors if you hold them in the sunlight for a few seconds.) :o)

I do Color Studies along with my larger paintings. Depending on the concept, I'll use between 1 and 5 small canvases to try out my color ideas and techniques before working on the larger piece. I test every phase of my paintings on these 5x5 inch blocks, so they are also UV reactive and glow in the dark. Each one is a tiny and complete original painting! :o)
