This painting has texture that you would love to touch. I created a very textured background using gels and pastes to build depth. When this was completely dry, I mixed the blues and whites into a light molding paste and spread over the surface with a palette knife. The reds and pinks peek through. I then added my collage of bamboo, poured on a Faux wax layer, added darks and I was done. Oh yes, there are always those little details to go back in and adjust, also the framing and showing the work and now it is sold.
