"Magazine Experiment" - 5" x 5"" - ink, watercolor and gouache on magazine paper
So there's a show coming up at Gallery 1988 SF in September. Each artist in the show was provided with a different movie poster (big posters) and were asked to paint on them.
The poster I got was Cocoon:
Should be fun, but the movie poster is made of this kind of reflective paper that I've never painted on before. We only get one shot at this, so decided to practice on the closest thing I could fine -- magazine paper. In this case, an old art catalog for Dick Blick.
Worked pretty well, I guess. The paper sort of repelled my attempts to paint a wash on it, but it took the india ink and gouache okay.
The paper got all wrinkled though. I'll have to try mounting some magazine paper and experiment some more. I have a few weeks, so there's time!
I hope. . . =P
The curator of the show put together a blog with more information about the show and provided login info to the artists -- So a few people have started talking about works in progress:
Hopefully more people will participate soon =)
