Very interesting!
Curious how you achieved that bright bluish Chain like look.

This is great - interesting and appealing. It reminds me of a star constellation - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - so the title is perfect!

I love the way the light plays on the turqoise chain. Some exciting shapes and colours. This really appeals to me.

Thanks for the great comments everyone!

Kathie the bright bluish chain was done by pouring circles and lines of untinted medium atop the figure, then directly painting titanium white around the poured medium, and finally pouring medium tinted very slightly with blue pigments (mostly phthalo) over the white. So it is essentially a very very light glaze of mostly phthalo blue on titanium white.

A studio mate called this piece "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" which is why the title is stuck in my mind.

Thanks Karen and Ken,
I officially named this piece Lucy, because I really can't get the title out of my head. LOL She is now up on the wall in my annual studio show. Hopefully we'll have a few people in to see her.
