JUN 4th - The JESTER Acrylic Transfer

This Jester made a fairly good acrylic transfer. I added to the number of coats of acrylic medium. I soaked the whole painting in warm water and was able to gently rub off alot of the paper. I painted the area where he would be glued to the canvas with a heavy gesso wash. So in the end - he does not appear to be transparent, his colors are vibrant, and the texture under him does not distract from the image. The transfer is a success! The painting so far is bad, oh so bad - but that's ok cause I am just experimenting!
