I just finished another painting from the “Crystals” series, totally in blue, called “Topaz”.

The difficulty with this piece again was to show the transparency and keep it looking like a natural, unpolished crystal (the polished ones simply look too artificial). I tried to achieve this with many layers of very thin paint and several layers of glazes.

I also tried to achieve a slightly abstract style in order to completely concentrate on the essence of this type of crystal.

And below is a detail image in order to show the fragile patterns in the painting itself:
