Just having some fun playing with color and texture. This hollow form vessel measures approximately 7.5 inches tall by 3.75 inches wide. It is finished with various acrylics. What do you think of the coloring and texture?

All comments, especially critiques, are welcomed and appreciated.

I like it. I’m just waiting for it to peel itself back and the alien to jump out.

Interesting texture. It looks like a giant pimento stuffed olive fresh out of the hands of Jackson Pollock. Where’s the giant martini glass?

I think you had too much fun!

Defiantly different…... but not sure if I like it or not. It will probably grow on me, but not sure right now.

Is the vase textured before the acrylics are applied, or is this the result of the acrylics application technique ?

Excellent, I do like it very much, great job. It is the rim that sets it off.
Great job, very creative, would like to know how you acheived the texture though.

I can’t get a good sense for the texture? Is the black recessed or flush to the yellow? Or is it all flat with the texture coming from the layers of color? Either way, it is an interesting study and I think we’ll see it in some incarnation again…

Certainly an interesting piece. As Steve said it is difficult to tell from the pictures if the surface is smooth or raised texture as it appears but the color is striking and it’s another fantstic piece.
