I started this painting with an acid yellow base and red. I asked my model April if I could use her a s brush. She’s small with great definition. I placed green and purple along the edges of the painting, she lied down in the paint and water mixture and I guided her back and forth over the surface three or for times until an image emerged. I spent about 20 hours on the result, finding shapes and edges.ย These colors vary greatly from my normal palette. I never use an acid green like this one and I tried to tone it down throughout the painting. I gave up fighting with it about 17 hours into the work and something happened; I applied a color that matched the green and the drawing unified. It shimmers in the light like an insect’s wing, impossible to capture with my camera.

    Folks, buy up this art while you can! Daniel is extremely talented and his work won’t be priced this low for long. The installment plan is a good idea for those of us who can’t pay it all at once.

    Some lovely stuff Daniel! Glad to see your art is coming along so nicely. I really like your striped stuff as well.
    Best,

    This piece and those related are very molecular looking to me, which I love. I studied Biology along with my art major. I’d love to see you demo how you use the balloons. Logan tried explaining it to me one time.
