Acrylic paint on hideous second hand canvas. I could no longer stand the random splotches of silver, scarlet, and forest green on black, so I sanded it, primed it and the covered it with the sepia-gold background colour. Then, I printed my lino cut giraffe on top. The texture is interesting because of my impatience. I printed on not completely dry paint, so some was lifted to reveal various colours below - a happy accident. She called for wings and received them.

What do think?
Thanks for looking.  Smiley
