More Layers on the Mystery

Here and there, I get time to work on my large mystery piece. As you might remember, it started off looking like this.
Kind of sad to paint over this.

I covered this base collage with orange and dark pink rectangles,

This was a little scary.

sanded the whole thing,

I am seeing more turquoise and pink. I feel better.

dry-brushed white gesso over the entire piece,

The gesso muted everything and brought out more warm tones.

Look how the tissue paper wrinkled and caught the paint and gesso. Yummy.
and started adding charcoal detail.

Many layers to go and no clear direction yet. It is refreshing and exciting to just go without a plan or a destination in mind. So much fun. My true adventure.
