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.
