. While I was waiting for the paint to dry in some heavily textured areas of both panels, I started working on something smaller yesterday. The idea came from my desire to work with resin. I've been wanting to use resin in my paintings for the past year but haven't gotten around to doing it for several reasons. One of the main reasons is the lack of ventilated space available to me, and Dubai being way too hot to work outside. In the mean time, I picked up a pad of tracing paper from the art store and started experimenting with that. I just wanted to see how layer after layer would create a larger composition. I used acrylic, spray paint and graphite and I LOVED how it turned out. This was just the first piece and I haven't given it a base yet nor have I figured out a way to make each layer stick to the other so I can frame it. But I definitely want to see where this could go. Now that I know that it could turn into something beautiful, I'm going to start thinking of ways to work with the tracing paper on canvas or wooden panels. I also wonder if the paper could be placed above texture or would it require a smooth surface. Those are questions I will answer in upcoming posts. For now, check out how this piece looks. It feels like a dream or a whisper. There's something so ethereal about it.
