Gessoed Kitty

The left page was painted with fluid acrylics (a mix of Golden's yellow oxide and pyrrole red with a bit of Rotring's gold) diluted with water. For the right page, I used Createx primary red and water. I was just playing around with backgrounds, as usual, to see what would happen. I used white gesso to brush over the picture of the cat (from a magazine ad) and then wiped most of it off with a kleenex. It softens the shiny image and makes it look a little more arty.
