Layers: A Tutorial: Part 4 - The Last Layer

I finally finished this layered piece. For the sixteenth and final layer I used acrylic paint to solidify and enhance a few more areas with in the swirling forms. I also used crimson paint to re-emphasize some of the red vellum I put in much earlier and to paint some thin red lines. I also used white paint marker to write some not so evident words and to draw in the lines and rectangles. I used black paint marker to draw more lines and to sign the piece. I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Now I just need to decide how if should be displayed. I was thinking about mounting it on wood and framing it some how, but who knows.

This was a brilliant process to see done! The artwork is incredible! I like the way you push and pull things back and forward while you are working on it. Every layer shows through, nothing has been lost completely! Thanks for doing this series of posts.

Great work Eric! What I like most about this one is the sense of depth you got from the shading and highlights, especially with regards to the swirls, which really holds this work together well.
