Breakthrough, 30" x 24", oil on steel panel, 2014.
Similar to wood panel or acrylic panel, the steel panel differs from canvas because it is more sensitive in revealing brush strokes and texture. The steel offers a neutral gray which is a good starting point for a painting, while also providing a sheen or glimmer behind thin layers of paint.
Unfortunately, the steel sheen is lost on the computer image. Also keep in mind that every computer screen has a different color balance and brightness/contrast settings, so the image above is not an exact replication of the painting.
