New painting ‘Phia’ nearly finished

It’s been taking a long time to get this one finished because I needed parts of it to be dry before I could work on it again. The above photo shows progress of the fourth and final layer of stripes on the top. It is now complete and is drying on my easel. Then my wonderful
man, Gene, will take a photo of it and translate it into a digital image for me.

I think this time I will take some shots to demonstrate what he does to make them look as close to the real thing, as it is quite a process. It’s taken years for Gene to develop this technique ( I didn’t ask him- he’s a perfectionist, I’m not complaining though!!) and it’s quite complex- I will probably never really understand what he does. But he does it and he does it well.
