An Encounter

They meet for the first time.

The original painting, now buried under the new version

The final image: watercolor and gouache over the acrylic/mod podge underpainting

ABOUT THE WORK

This painting was done with a mix of acrylic, gouache, watercolor, and more gouache in several stages. The original piece was scanned and then immediately ruined in an attempt to “varnish” it with mod podge. The water-based mod podge reactivated the gouache and melted all the paint together.

So, a second attempt was made. In my opinion, it turned out better than the first.
