Day 24....



Happy Sunday, my blog friends... I hope you guys are all well today.

I spent this afternoon at Jerryartarama...doing a demo with acrylic paints, inks, and rice papers...


Talk about mad science....I could spend all day doing nothing but coloring papers....


Wetting the paper down, then spraying them with inks or painting on a wash of color....then, adding more color...so - much - fun!!!


I also like to sit different pieces of wet paper on top of others and allow different colors to bleed onto other papers...like the one in the top photo.

So...I enjoyed my daygetting good and messy in my favorite art store....my hands are still multi-colored to prove it!!!

Until next time,

Ophelia

Love the results of your experimentation! I wish I lived in a community with a shop such as this, offering unique learning opportunities like that which you describe here! I do learn so much from your blog, though, and appreciate it greatly that you are willing to share what you've done and learned with your readers!:-)
