Bits, Pieces, and Parts Thereof…

Back in early February, I painted two canvases 2″ X 2″ tiles as part of a colour test for a larger project that will be on exhibit in the Porcupine Art Club’s themed show “Brilliant Earth” at the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre in June. (The test canvases can be seen here: https://gaelicnisei.wordpress.com/2015/02/06/colour-test-in-acrylic/.) Over the past six weeks, I’ve acquired the materials, drafted the scene, transferred it, and today I finally began painting it. Below are some fragments of the painting in progress – they’re not in any sort of composition order to keep the final picture a mystery.

Note: The pictures are quite grainy, because I was using a point & shoot camera that ISO set quite high.
