Experiment with Wet-in-Wet Acrylic

Mystery layer

I am working on projects that require experimentation. This one has an underpainting of Vivian based upon her final selfie that she uploaded to instagram, titled "Busy Dying". I did not take a pic of the underpainting, drat it all, but now this is how the gel layer looks. The process is to cover the entire piece with a thick layer of soft gel (gloss), paint into it, wet-in-wet, then let it dry to a clear layer over the underpainting. I have no idea what this will finally look like! The idea I had was Vivian's face with an osprey face mask on it. We shall see!
