I have been working with this color palette for quite some time. It was originally inspired by my love for a particular kind of quartz crystal called Ametrine. Ametrine is a combination of citrine and amethyst. Pieces I've seen are usually a light purple with small spots of orangeish hue. It's just so pretty...
Palette for this piece is red, orange, magenta, black, white, and a very warm yellow. In person, yellow center is slightly warmer than it appears on my screen.
Sun at the Center was created with artist grade acrylic paints, black acrylic gesso and white gel pen on a 6x6" Ampersand Gessoboard with a 1/8" thickness. Made from sustainable forest products that ensure the protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water, Gessobord is formaldehyde-free and contains no harmful volatile organic compounds. This piece was lightly sprayed with a sealant.
Piece has been signed on the rear of the image and is ready to be framed, matted, or displayed on a small easel.
