Day 38: on the road

Process, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush, toothpick.

The Backstory: I did not like the quality of the line made on Day 37 by the wood cuticle pusher, so I returned to capture the bouquet using only a toothpick. The toothpick proved a superior tool, but I still faced the problem of the translucency of the paint and the lack of integrity of the surface (the art store wrongly assured me the canvas paper would not warp when applying paint).The layering/scraping process I have been developing works best with opaque paint, so it became clear to me that I would have to develop a new technique while on the road.
