watercolour wash 
printing roller + PC gloss printing paper 


.....another small wash painted on plastic coated inkjet paper . The paint was applied with a brush and a printing roller .From a distance the pattern created reminds me of a night time view of a glass façade . The plastic  coated  surface of the printing paper is fascinating to work on .It appears to be very similar to working on Yupo and other synthetic papers - here's a link about synthetic paper on handprint.com   http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/paper4.html 
It would be interesting to develop this wash  by wiping/lifting off areas creating hard edges  and adding additional layers .

You´re an authentic D+I department, always experimenting.
I love this work.

Have never tried this type of paper. Am always scared of experimenting. But I guess that is the way forward. The pattern is beautiful. You can work on it. Might get some more surprises!

It 's always fascinating experiment! Your stunning work is beautifully coherent with your other works. Each surface can lead to new opportunities, but the hand of the artist is the only director of the event. Have a good weekend, Rita.

Fascinating, Jane! The link to handprint.com does not work but I imagine it is similar to yupo.

Each experiment leads to another to experiment Sergio ....many thanks for always taking the time to comment .

AK i hope you do experiment ...I was surprised by the result and of this inkjet paper ...I!ve been teaching children in the last months watching them paint and their excitement is just fantastic .

Chagua ...changing the pressure of the print roller creates a pattern I could not paint with a brush ...I made several washes with this approach
