Glue Gel Resist - Feline

Feline - interestingly, I really loved this image when I had it drawn in glue gel before I painted it. Now, I feel like the background is too washed out and the figure is not as purple as I had hoped. I know it will look much better when the glue is washed away . . . or I could paint it more first to intensify the colors.

Or . . . I am contemplating adding texture and depth with block printing before I wash out the glue. Since I am not too happy with it now - I am willing to take a gamble and add another layer. It will be interesting. I am just not sure when it will happen. There's a lot going on right now.

On my computer screen the yellow background dominates the purple figure. I am loving your series with the glue gel resit.
I agree that the block printing would be very interesting on this piece. Can't wait to see what you do
