All the paintings I have displayed here are hand-painted and i use natural materials . The bases i use are acrylic mixed with other raw pigments,precious & semi-precious stones and minerals . The 3D chromadepth effect is not a program or digital effect . It happens from the layering process I do and is accidental. The illumination created is an effect that strontium particles give off when charged with light beams( see laser experiment videos) or u.v. light source . The process allows me many freedoms in duality and surrealism , it lends itself to making changes in the image through the emitting of light in differing color spectrum's (after the strontium receives light it charges and gives off light for up to 12hr)Like the picture changing from daylight to night right before your eyes simply by turning the light off in the room its displayed they charge the best and quickest from sunlight or u.v.(black light) in a matter of mins.
