Wednesdays post showed a bench load of citrasolv papers made by dissolving the ink of old copies of the national geographic.
To answer an earlier question by ' fuzzy' I believe new copies don't dissolve as well, although I can't vouch for that as I have only tried it on old copies bought from charity shops or Ebay.

|Soon became this!|
I began to see a tree emerging from the at first abstract shapes. I used acrylics and gold leaf to build up textures, adding modelling paste to add a dimensional element.
Although starting off as an abstract it has now become a landscape. I see water, heather, sea and distant hills and a single lone tree. standing tall.
