Recycled

Detail from Diamond Doors, 2006
Acrylic and ink on photo paper

This was when I discovered high-gloss ink jet photo paper scraps as a medium for painting. It makes a bright white shiny background on which even bright colors appear somewhat dull. I liked the effect.

Not such a great scan, I'm afraid.

I love this. Great colours. Also a good idea to use up shards of photo paper!

Wow! What a great idea. I'll give this a try. I need to experiment more on different types of paper. Thanks for the inspiration! x
