Papaloa Jewel by troycarney Papaloa Jewel by troycarney
Papaloa Jewel. 18″x24″ oil, 12k white gold, 18k and 23k yellow gold on a 20 layer deep hand cut bas-relief. Completed 9/13/13. Papaloa is the name of the outer reef at Tunnels Beach where I grew up here on Kauai. Papaloa Jewel has an interesting beginning. I first started the sketches for this in the shade of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap Cambodia last June. I was dripping with sweet on my sketch book in the extremely hot Cambodian summer. Great place for inspiration with all the ancient art work everywhere you look.

So beautiful! For some reason, it almost looks like a digital painting up close. I'm guessing it's because the colors are do vivid. Lovely work!

Hi, thanks. You are right to see that. It's the texture under the 12k gold leaf. If the painting is seen with the light at a different slight angle it disappears  and the painting will tack on another look. :) All the metallic is genuine gold and the rest is oil paint.
