Opal Sunset

Opal Sunset began as an experiment in acrylic paint on canvas. The traditional media painting combines layers of metallic paints mixed on-canvas with the natural flow of water. Once dry, photographs were taken of the painting from various angles.

The resulting photos were imported into Adobe® Photoshop® to be arranged and composited on top of one another to create the final mixed-media digital painting – a colorful, abstract sunset.
