Each of these paintings is Sculpted & Carved, then sealed & painted. It is either painted with Acrylic or Oil Paints or a combination of both. (Usually Bas/Alto Reliefs are sealed, painted just one color and then Faux finished/Glazed.)
When painting a Painted Relief the sky is done during the process, as it is the main backdrop of the painting. 3-D Paintings are a little trickier than a regular painting, but the effects are beautiful! Check out the listings on the side bar ("Colors of the Night", "Lakeside Fire", "Sweet Hummings", "Troubled Waters", etc.)
