.....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 .
