Day 18 This started in a totally different direction and then when I turned it went another direction. This, believe it or not, had a strip of aluminum foil going through the cloud layer. I was hoping that it would still be reflective (you can see hints of reflections in real life), but I wasn't able to really pull that off, so I added the white clouds to cover the edges. There are quite a few layers to this piece and I am learning not to get too precious about anything that I like in the first layers. To get the texture you have to build up. Also when using the gloss medium it tends to make everything translucent, so I have to figure out more strategically where I really want to use that layer to protect existing layers.
