Art :: Gallery Nine: Beyond Enamels
I soon discovered that I could turn enamels into inputs, with macro water color on Photo Editor to follow it. That gave a distinctive texture: any painting in this gallery with the suffix “w” has undergone this process.
I also found that some enamels looked better with some smudging done to them. I call it “smooth smudging” since it leaves a milky soft look: any painting in this gallery with the suffix “s” has undergone this process.
Finally, in some cases, doing a sequence of macro negatives and water colors (at least 2 rounds) produces yet another striking effect: any painting in this gallery with the suffix “2” has been through this process. As indicated, all the paintings in this gallery come from enamels.
