The Watchers (or Alien Invasion!)

These are two examples I did for my watermedia class this afternoon - the red was done ahead of time and the blues were the demonstration.  The technique is done by squeeging acrlic paint which has been arranged in a specific manner - in this case to form figures when squeeged in a specific direction.  After the paint dries, I added detailing with Sharpie markers and gold glitter paint. These are done on chips of mat board 8"x 10" and 9" x 12".  We had a lot of fun this afternoon doing this project!

They remind me of religious paintings of monks. I love both of them!

Wow Barb! I have used a squeegee on Yupo paper, but never on matboard. This is super and I love the dynamics of it.

Susan - thanks for commenting - I have never tried to squeegee on YUPO - I'll have to try this.
