This is one of those pieces that went through a lot of changes before it arrived at it’s final destination! That’s a nice way of saying it challenged me a bit. 🙂 But I enjoy a challenge from time to time so that was just fine. It began with a strip of aluminum surrounded by a textured layer of mortar. It also began as a very blue color!
The layers of color just kept on coming and eventually the hue changed from blue to more predominantly brown tones.
Getting closer but now I felt like maybe I’d covered up too much of the blue! Finding the middle ground is difficult some days.
Back in with a bit of blue and then some rust and copper colors to blend the top & bottom of the pieces and it was finally finished. I don’t know if it was the abundance of trains in the area, the many local mines or just my imagination but the strip of aluminum began to remind me of a railway along the side of a steep mountain, thus it’s name “Incline”.
More art on Thursday!
