This was one of those backgrounds that I forgot to photograph. It was collaged National Geographic page treated with Citrisolv which causes the ink on the page to move around and created interesting abstract patterning. I have yet to find another high gloss magazine where the ink will dissolve in this way. This technique was promoted by Robert Burridge. I don't think he invented it but you never know. Be sure and have good ventilation when doing this. Even though Citrisolv has a pleasant odor, after a while it is overwhelming and nauseating. I found this surface very pleasing to draw on top of.
I took all fifty tiles to Critique this morning. We laid them out in the 7 x 7 formatted rows and then shuffled them around for the best balanced view. The help was much appreciated.
I had the unexpected honor of appearing in the latest issue of Palette Magazine and I am extremely complimented by the text of the article. Sharing a page with Picasso is heady company, for sure!
