This is a good example of different techniques combined in one abstract painting.  The canvas was prepared with a strong layer of gesso.  The end of a brush and other blunt tools were used to create a gold and green pattern on the first surface.  Next, colors covered the gesso and a tint was laid over the different colors.  There is a lot of brush work and dripping and splashing, Jackson Pollack style, on this painting.  After drying, I used more tinting and brush work, and then repeated the same process again with different bright colors and tints.  The final layer involved more brush work and dripping and splashing some bright white and dark blacks, reds and bright yellow for highlighting.  Look closely and you can see the patterns underneath everything in the gesso.
