Iskandar Jalil. Kembara Tanah Liat ( Clay Travels ) The end papers .... Never throw anything away.
Never throw anything away... All last night I had this thought, something was nagging me about the end papers. In my back eye I kept seeing the end papers but when I looked at what was on the painting surface. This morning I sat down and looked at the previous days work.
There is nothing wrong with the work but there it was not balanced. I then looked at what the painting surface had been resting on.
The paper had been one of the papers I had coloured using oil based printing inks. The re-worked with white spirit and left to dry. The results was not what I was looking for... So I used it as a cover to save the work surface from getting paint drips and stuff on it.
I had kept seeing it...... Obvious.
From top left clockwise.... front end paper, back end paper and finally detail.
Exactly what I am looking for.
