So my verdict on painting on copper? I believe I am going to like it a lot. I love the way the colors look. I will have to make adjustments to the intensity and value of the colors when I paint on copper. They seem to work differently than when I paint on canvas. Holding this painting up to the wave studies I have done on canvas makes them look dull. It will take a little practice to get the painting technique down but I think I will be able to make the adjustment fairly quick.
I thought I would wrap up the post with a teaser of sorts. I am planning to paint two self portraits. I am painting self portraits because the model works for chocolate and, while she is not always patient, she is willing to keep showing up. I needed a reference model for an element in the painting I am planning. I thought I would show it here:
