The above Coloured Stones began as an experiment with mediums. Mediums are pastes and gels that you apply to the surface of a painting or mix with acrylic paint to give certain effects. I wanted a rocky surface effect and so I applied this paste to my painting before adding colour. I then started with shadows and highlights and about 20 different colours. The final stage was to create acrylic washes of colour ( this acrylic paint and mixed with water) for a transparent effect. What you end up with is layers of colours that reflect the light and glow.
