The technique I used in this painting was done by layering tissue paper onto the canvas with a base color of red acrylic acting as my glue. This creates a wonderful texture. After this layer dries I start to build colors on top of the base using green-gold, unbleached titanium white, yellow ocher, burnt siena and metallic gold and copper. I paint the subject on top of this abstract background. By keeping the subject simple and using the same colors as the background the paintings take on a spiritual effect.
NOTE; This painting, along with my entire inventory and art studio, was destroyed in the Lahaina fire on August 8th, 2023.
