Transparency

These two 8-inch square pieces are compositions from last week's lesson 4 of Extreme Comp.  There were several exercises earlier in the lesson, including creating transparent papers to use over collage or painting.  The transparencies are deli paper and tissue paper printed, stamped, drawn and/or painted with acrylic paint, ink, graphite and pen.

I really resonated with this lesson.  Love the transparency, love the layers.  I'll post two more of these tomorrow.

I really like the surface texture the tissue paper creates - it adds another "layer" all by itself, even without the designs painted or printed on it.

yup, I'm devoted to the transparency now. sometimes it's just a great way to take an idea and "try it on" - I might end up rejecting the transparency and just making the mark directly, but the transparency lets me play with composition. but mostly I use them for the extra depth and texture that they bring.

Love the first one, I wonder what deli paper is called in Australia?

Yeah, deli paper is the bomb! I do a ton of gelli printing on it, for that great layering effect. Love both of those, so much movement and stuff to look at.
