(Post updated at higher resolution) Here is one more example of a technique I enjoy using: layers of different kinds of acrylic paint (one opaque and the other glossy). As you can see, light angle changes the overall effect, affecting illusory depth too (if any). This is specially evident when moving in front of the picture. I find this a little bit similar to the multiplane camera technique used in motion pictures in traditional animation: various pieces of artwork are stacked and moved past the camera in order to simulate a three-dimensional effect.

(Post aggiornato a risoluzione più alta) Ecco un altro esempio di una tecnica che uso abbastanza spesso: strati di diversi tipi di colori acrilici (uno opaco e l’altro lucido). L’angolo di incidenza della luca cambia l’aspetto generale, influenzando anche l’eventuale effetto di profondità – cosa molto evidente specie se ci si sposta davanti alla tela.  Questa tecnica mi ricorda un po’ quella della multiplane camera usata per la realizzazione di film di animazione tradizionali: varie parti disegnate sono impilate e mosse di fronte alla macchina da presa per simulare un effetto tridimensionale.
