Painting of Professor Iain Stewart at UNSW 2014. Anne L.P-B-4

I wanted it to represent a lava flow, but not make it so bright that it took over the subject. I did this by painting watered-down brown acrylic paint over the orange, waiting a while, then spattering clean water over it with a toothbrush, and finally, blotting the water off carefully with paper towel.
