Out of the Concrete

This was an experiment for a larger painting I want to do. The method I used here will not work for what I had in mind but as happens so often, this took on a life of it's own. I used a lot of gel medium to create the texture. There are several layers of color washes and it's over painted with Iridescence Pearl. There's also has a layer of Interference Gold on the bottom - both of which make it difficult at best photograph. It was entirely unintentional that it ends up looking like a floral - after all this was only meant as an experiment - but I thought it might be fun to share it anyway....
