The last yard with this painting was interesting as I kept adding copper for corrections and to achieve likeness...
To retain as much iridescence as possible, I ended up mixing my darks with stainless steel using it as a neutral color.
Some weird reflections here, but certainly intriguing to say the least.
Note: I spent more time with the mirror for this one... and ended up having a hard time reconciling with the unreflected reality, notwithstanding the one gazillion versions depending on the viewing angle!
Note to self: "I feel propelled towards the unknown... and kind of attracted by it... so be it!
