October 9, 2012: A day to just play and
experiment in the studio!
Inspired by squares painted in the
background of yesterday's wild turkeys,
I wanted to continue with the theme.
The Violet Interference paint I used over
the Medium Magenta in the background is
difficult to capture in a scan or photograph.
The nature of interference paint is the overall
sheen will shift slightly between opalescence
and other tones within its complementary
spectrum, depending on the lighting.
Hat tip to the loon from one of my previous
paintings 'Upstream'. Loving loons as I do,
and having painted them numerous times, I
decided to substitute a few squares for the
spots on its back. Perhaps, one day, I'll paint
an entire loon that way...however, today,
just a portion...entirely for fun.
