Astoundingly great paintings Jenny & Natalie  :clap:   :clap:   :clap:   :clap:
Love all the colours and the movement. Can't wait to have a go at this one, love the effects created with the clingwrap.
Absolutely brilliant lesson Dennis...not sure how this will transfer into my portraits though....   :heeha:   ;D
Cheers, Val

I`ve tried this too, I find something well but I think I`ll take my time to try once more. It is pretty fun.

Harald, I see a pretty lotus flower floating about....

Here is my abstract using the alcohol and salt.  I was disappointed in the reaction of the alcohol.  It wasn't anywhere near what Dennis got.  :(   I also wasn't sure which way to turn it.   :-\   I flipped it around several times and finally decided I liked this way better.  You decide.


This was using the saran wrap.  The colors were really bright before I put on the plastic but then they came out kind of muddy when I took it off.  :confused:



Jenny, Natalie, and Harold--I really like all your paintings.  All so different with such vivid colors.  Very nice.

I think Dennis said that whatever he used was close to 100% alcohol-definitely a much bigger reaction to normal drugstore stuff.

I must have missed that part.  All I heard was alcohol.  Maybe a little "red eye" or some "shine" would work better.  Maybe a couple of shots would help my painting also.   :D

Harald, I see flags, golf clubs, a howling wolf, a bat with wings spread, a rocking horse and a few other things.  Good job!  Fun! :clap: :clap:
