Animal-tamer, journal pages

For the DLP project, the theme this week was 'layers'.

'Animal-tamer', mixed media, DLP journal pages

I used mainly stencilling and some pen and some paint glazes on this page spread.

I started with tissue paper that had been painted in horizontal stripes, pasted that to my journal, and saw the animals and figure and so I emphasized them with pen and some paint glazes.  

If it was to be a painting for the wall, I think I might darken the creatures and/or lighten the background for better contrast but for journal pages and to get the idea down, this is OK for me.

It is easier to see the figures IRL.
