Nude with Abstract

Sold              8 by 10 inches,              Mixed media on acid free illustration board
This was my second attempt at this piece.  The background is applied with colorful craft tissue.  The tissue is moistened and placed on the white illustration board.  It is then removed and the color remains on the surface. My first attempt ended with the board too wet.  This caused the frisket not to stick properly.  With my second attempt I applied the tissue with less water.  The figure was done with acrylic paint applied with airbrush. I thought about painting a cast shadow by the figure.  With this particular background I didn't think it would be successful.
