Plaster Plaster Plaster

It was hard getting the colors right on this one. The surface is a soft, powdery blue with warmer layers revealed and sharp focus lines scored in. A colleague once pointed out that a good abstract should contain areas of soft as well as areas of sharp focus; I don't know if I'd adhere to that but this one has both. I haven't cold waxed the surface yet but I'm going to. That should bring up the color a little.

oh man, this is just heavenly... I can't imagine what it's going to be like once you give it the ol' wax treatment.
Thanks, Judy!

These are fantastic - I love the texture and layers, the depth.

Is this a medium you are inventing/perfecting or would there be more information out there about it?
