I had already posted, some time ago, the two images of this one – but one by one, so I decided to gather them together and repost. Yes, it’s the same painting, but under different light conditions. It’s a technique I enjoy using quite often: layers of different kinds of acrylic paint (one opaque and the other glossy), so that light angle changes the overall effect.

Avevo già pubblicato separatamente, qualche tempo fa, le due immagini di questo quadro, ma ho deciso di metterle insieme nello stesso post. E’ proprio lo stesso quadro ma in due diverse condizioni di illuminazione. Si tratta di una tecnica che mi piace usare abbastanza spesso: strati di diversi tipi di colori acrilici (uno opaco e l’altro lucido), cosicché l’angolo d’incidenza della luce cambia l’aspetto generale.

    That sounds like a really interesting technique. Will you be posting sometime and explanation of how to do that, or maybe a how-to guide? It’s a fantastic image!
