I hung Silja I this Sunday

Last time when I was at Siljaline,
between Sweden and Finland,
I saw this couple, totally devoted
to each other and their dancing.
I loved watching them.
Now I am into these dancing images
and I simply
can´t stop!

Have discovered fake aqautint which
is a great technique if you don´t have
enough equipment for the real one.
One needs an air-brush compressor, ink and
white tempera paint.

I tried this technique on my collages.
I had to make a few layers of lacquer until
I got the ink to get stuck onto the canvas.
I need to refine this technique a bit more but
here you see the result from my experiments.

                                                                       More Sunday images at Inpirationsfabriken.
