Abstract painting

I've got to figure out a way to get better photos of my work. A lighting tent perhaps? No place for one though, sadly. I finally started experimenting with different sizes of canvases in the hopes that I'll figure out what size is comfortable to work in. 6x6 inches isn't it! I reworked this one until the only hope for it was to stop and move on. The band of color is copper flashing. Acrylic paints, mostly Golden's fluid.

A close-up of the copper band. So, how did I get this look? Guess.

Wow! I really like this Gail, especially the colours and the turqouise effects on the copper. Was it salt? It doesn't really look like salt crystals tho.

The texture in this piece is delicious the colors seem too met together in a cohesive piece.

Gail, I'm loving the abstract work! Really nice. I would never know they were 6 x 6.
