This painting is two years in the making. I layers three different paintings on top of each other to create a vibrating effect with the colors. The underpainting consists of a normal landscape with representational colors. On top of that I added a gradient "chain mail" layer of color with circles. Finally, in the center of the circles, I added yet another gradient of paint in the form of dots. The three layers create tension and vibrancy that cannot be achieved with other strategies.
