squint your eyes till you can see the angel – looking toward solstice dawn.

I’m in the midst of a run of the local community theater Christmas Revels-type show, so studio time is very short these past few days. I’m still fascinated by this particular technique, and trying to get a better handle on controlling it. Results not always satisfying, but learning is fun. With this one, I didn’t have time to wait till the water-based paint dried before scraping it off, but it still sort of worked. I did boost the contrast in the scan a little; the actual picture is a bit paler. Cheating!!

Show’s over, I had more time to spend with this drawing. Update posted below.
