See T’Hed Fifty… just because!

Sticking with the odd (11″ x 17′, yellow-ish printer paper) as a base, I glued on a scrap piece of wallpaper, and tried to paint on some (black) gouache. Then I let it dry (to see if the pastels would work better on the dry paper, because they tore it when it was wet). I actually used a better quality oil pastel for this and found the black outline (my first step on the dry surface) got very smeared into the other colours… what it lessened in the vibrancy of colours; it equally heightened in textures and a real skin feel. I think I forgot just how messy oil pastels get… I’ve done another similar to this, before trying other material combinations…

stay tuned…
