It was sometime since I'd used the techniques and had forgotten the pleasure in the serendipity of the process - all those unexpected effects as colours mix and merge and are superimposed.
I kept it simple and small-scale (about A4) but was surprised again at the effects possible with acrylic paint, just by changing the consistency of the paint, layering colours, marking into the paint on the plate and masking out areas.
There were lots of failures and some pleasures, as is always true in play (and the point of it really), but there are three pieces of fabric offering possibilities for stitch doodles. Others will go into my fabric box to await their fate.
Off a glass plate came this one - a hedgerow or coppice?
Off the Gelli Plate came this one - perhaps a snippet of a stone wall?
And off the glass plate again and back to circles - an abstract.
