I proceeded to new tests with ink alcohol on some transparent plastic. I was so intrigued by the results of previous experiences I wanted to see if it was just a coincidence, or if I could find enough creative interest to incite me to explore deeper this technique. (To see the previous experiment, click here.)

Here is the result…

I’m not used to paint on both sides of a transparent surface. It’s destabilizing, but at the same time, very exciting because when exploring this new technique and surface, the part of the unknown is big and bring every time its dose of surprises.

Here you can have a better look to the colors. The bright and intense colors are on the front side of the plastic sheet. The pale red and blue are on the back side. April 2015. © 2015, Louise Lamirande.

Of course the disappointment is possible, but for now, since it is only simple tests, I do not feel any pressure to succeed. It is one of the advantages of the exploratory phase.

The next step for me is to try this technique with a transparent support which I know for sure that is acid free and will not become yellow over time. A visit to my art supplies dealer is a must…

Thanks for your visit on the blog and see you soon,
