'The Portal' showcases the precision and detail present in many of my images. It shows a number of geometric objects swirling through a vortex into a white portal. Surrounding the halo of the portal is a fabric or netting preventing the objects from bypassing the portal.
Characteristics of 'The Portal': This image features very fine details including precise color bands, smoothly stepped texture gradations, and visibly correct transitions between order and chaos at the smallest level. Come with me on a short tour and I'll point out examples of these, then leave it to you to further examine this unusually detailed image.
The Tour: When you roll your mouse pointer over the image, you'll see that it is broken down into rows and columns of squares, each of which lets you zoom in for a detailed view.
Now, move your pointer about half of the way down the left side of the image to the square above the small white triangle. Click just above the triangle on the boundary between the green and the lighter colored 'fabric' of the background. Note the chaotic 'worn' edge between the green area and the fabric. Also, note the finely shaded textures that dominate the area immediately above the green.
The squares comprising the red halo around the portal show examples of finely-stepped color bands and the smooth transition into the fabric mesh around the halo.
After you spend a little time exploring more of the image and see the devotion that went into every part of this artwork, I think you'll agree that The Portal will remain beautiful even in the large format of a four foot wide canvas.
