the sheen

Acrylic paint has a pleasant sheen.  You can see the reflection of light on the surface in this detail from the lower half of the Long Blue River featured in the previous post.  The material, the paint surface itself, has its own beauty.

Here’s the whole panel of which a detail was featured in the previous post.  It measures 24 x 12 inches.  I’ve been really pushing the paint, going for the texture.

I notice that I really like the color blue.
