For something completely different I found myself working with alcohol ink on canvas for the first time and not knowing what to expect, I was surprised with the results. I then layered fabric, silk paper, copy paper and many many MANY beads.
After about four days and nights I emerged from the studio with Orange Nazar! The point of it? Ah! Yes it was created in response to a non traditional themed exhibition, Pushing the Boundaries - which is currently on show at the Victorian Artists Society, where participants were challenged to create an art work without using any traditional materials. That is: no watercolours, oil paints, acrylic paints, pencils or pastels. I stuck to those limits and broke into new creative ground.
