I think I mentioned that I am taking an online acrylic painting class. I'm learning how to apply opaque colors, transparent colors, mixing with glaze and using polymer gloss. All things that I have used in the past but not in this way. A recent lesson had 19 layers!! I love that look.
Anyway, for this current lesson we are to look for color combinations and you know I'm going to turn to nature for that. I have a wonderful coffee table book called Within The Stone, which I actually saw at someones house and then ordered it used from Amazon. It came in mint condition for half the price. I love Amazon.com!!!
I put together some photographs for the other people in the class for inspiration if they were having a brain freeze. If you would like to see these beautiful pictures of cut stones go to:http://picasaweb.google.com/bea3150/NatureSArt#
