12" x 16", acrylic and plaster on canvas board

This paint­ing, incor­po­rat­ing plas­ter, was a study in tex­ture, per­spec­tive and col­or combinations.

Plaster was used to build up the cen­tral por­tion into a moun­tain-like seg­ment and the black shad­ow was paint­ed on to define the built-up seg­ment and to sug­gest vary­ing heights between the col­ored sec­tions, although all three col­ors are on the same plane. The thick­ness of the shad­ow lines sug­gests that the blue seg­ment lies above the gray seg­ment and both lie above the earth-col­ored segment.
