Coming into Focus

I am using acrylic paints on this project because I want a flat, decorative look like the triptychs in Mary's book, "Hawai'i, a Sense of Place" which is where the clients first became interested in my work. What may not be apparent in the photos is the use of metallic gold paint to recreate a shimmering sense of light and give reflectivity to the piece so it interacts with its surroundings.

So as I get closer to completion the various parts of the painting start to swim into focus. Of course this doesn't mean that major changes couldn't still happen....
