Experimental Project

This was one of my projects today.....Kay I need a grade..this is 15x11 Arches rough #140.  Matt Medium was handy so it was applied with a brush on dry paper using a crusifrom design and then layed down newspaper....let it dry, pealed off what would come off and started painting with transparents and gouche.  Some of the paper on the side of the building looks like graffiti and a piece of the cartoons made an interesting sign under the awning.  The church domes were not in the original drawing...when the paper was pulled off those were the shapes I had to work with.....so domes were the best choice.  I didn't give a lot of thought to the newsprint just wanted to work with whatever happened...fun experiment....


  1. I really like it! The paper gave it a nice unexpected look. I wish it was larger to see more. You deserve an A+ on this experiment!

    1. Unexpected was what I saw when the paper was removed...seems to be a little congested but working with what was there was a challenge..thanks for the A+...

  2. I really like it & I agree with Kay ..

  3. looks good! i am anxious to try it too!

  4. JoBeth I like it. You were having fun. Good job.

  5. Thanks to all...have not tried it again..but it was different....
