Mixed Media and Acrylic Inks

Following a mixed media workshop a couple of weeks ago I had a canvas which was half finished sitting in my room waiting for me to do something with it. I had just received a poster from the RSPB depicting a crane in flight and it caught my imagination as I thought this would look good on my half finished canvas.

The original canvas was made by tearing and crumpling tissue paper and adhering it to the canvas with watered down PVA. When this had dried the canvas is sprayed with water and then acrylic inks dripped onto it with gay abandon!!! This is what I had waiting for me. So today I thought it deserved finishing and this is what it came out like.

Thanks for looking.
