silver pool, 2019 by Helen Latham
Acrylic and oil on board. Uses shine, opacity and tonal similarity to play with the eye and create an image with reduced tonal difference that alters greatly depending on the angle the picture is viewed from and the lighting conditions: sometimes highlighting the image, sometimes revealing the brushstrokes only.
