Gravity Painting #6: A Study in Materials and Colors

This piece was an exercise in trying a new substrate, as well as mixing mediums. 

I chose a 12" Ampersand "GessoBord" for this piece.  I also wanted to try some earth tones.   Because this piece is only 12"x'12", I only laid down the background colors in paint, and used a Japanese calligraphy pen for the lines.

When I was getting ready to do a gloss medium wash over the piece, I found out that the ink was water soluble.  Yay!   A happy accident that worked in my favor.

Final piece after the medium dried.
