Twisted tiler structure, acrylic, gouache, graphite and toner transfer on wood

Another small experimental piece, using SketchUp and the tiling Ruby plugin I described previously. In this case I’m using gouache rather than acrylic for ease of blending, isolating thin layers of paint between layers of acrylic medium to stabilize and provide isolation for subsequent layers. A fun way to work – it has something of the best of both oil and acrylic worlds (ability to use gels, to draw w/ graphite, and to blend), though of course you don’t get the saturated richness of colors this way that you get with oil.
