5 panels

A couple of weeks ago I decided to finally make a 5 panel painting for my lounge, its something I have wanted to make for a long time, the only thing is this took on a life of its own, I had planned on doing earthy colours, through to burnt orange and deep wine.
I started with a base of red oxide and nickel azo gold, threw a bit of turquoise in the mix, and then I picked up some new sprays I bought recently 'That Special Touch of Mica' rich purple and green pearl, I am in love with these colours,



You can just see the base colour of red oxide in the picture above, and then the other colours just took over



I kept adding more colours and playing with it, until I had to make myself leave it alone, but only after I added a touch of Goldfinger
They are up on the wall but its hard to get a picture of the true colours,I will try again when the sun is shining, its so dark and gloomy today. the top half glows in the light.



The top half glows in the light,
PS, question, if three panels are a triptych what are 5 panels called :)
