Patina by Cyd Rust

24" x 24"





PATINA is unique in that there is actually another painting underneath this one, but sadly it didn't make it. So I began a new painting over it as the former had wonderful texture and a lot of fine copper. As I worked on this new intuitive piece, the sculptor in me began to realize it was beginning to look a little like a patina that was starting to turn. So I followed the muse, and rubbed back some of the new top coat to let just a little of those wonderful lines and copper peek through. When the light hits it in a certain way, and I suspect this is from the copper underneath, the transparent and translucent layers in this painting become almost alive.
