"Below The Surface"
Image size 12" x 12"
I wanted to work more with layers and textures this week and get a sense of atmospheric depth. I used a variety of transparencies of wax and some layers of alcohol inks in the lower part. My surface was an cradled board that I didn't gesso. The unfinished wood gives a bit softer look than if the background had been the bright white of a gessoed surface.
The striations in the top light layer in the bottom portion were achieved by using a cheap, thin brush that is missing half of the bristles. That gave a nice texture that shows more in person than in this photo.
