looks like a bit of metallic watercolor in this one. nice effects however you did them. great texture and color in this minimalist piece. I see a dragon traversing the sky.

screenpainter, this being the Year of the Dragon, I suppose there may have been a subliminal influence :-) ... I hadn't thought of using metallic pigment, generally I avoid anything hard or shiny as a subject ...

MSIE, three-D was a by-product, I guess I should try to exploit it more ... I wish I could remember exactly how I got those effects, this was one painting that got away from me as I worked at it ...

Very interesting growth of a sort of metallic moss and lichen colony on Your sheet, like the outcome of some biological experiment.:):):):):)
