This project is DONE!!! Panel three was completed this afternoon. Here is a combined-via-photoshop photo of the completed work. It has been a long journey, but the end has been reached. I will try to get better photos of the pieces and show more details in the next day or so. Unfortunately, I have no place to display the pieces as they are meant to be... in their diamond form, so I am forced to just keep them side by side. but someday, I will hang them properly.

Finished the highlight on the knotwork on the second panel. Just have the frame to do and this one will be done. the highlight is really hard to see against the yellow, but it is there and looks nice. Some highlight can be seen already on the blue framework. It makes the entire design "pop".

It is with great delight that I can say this day that panel One is finished! I had to enhance the black a little in the picture, because I could not get a clear shoot without glare. My plan is to dull all three panels down with a Matte spray to reduce glare and make them appear uniform. I will do this when they are all done. (What I probably should have done was to mix in a flatting agent into my black to eliminate the shine as I was painting these, but sometimes the ideas come too late. Now on to Panel two.

Although I have not blogged in two days, I have not been inactive. I finished all the black on panel One and now all three can be seen togther. I have also begun the white highlight on panel One as can be seen in the detail photo. It is all nearing completion. I can see them done in my mind and wish I could move a thousand times faster to make my hands catch up!
