After selling works that I’ve wrapped in bubble plastic for shipping I’ve discovered that it had always an very interesting look. There was always a nice realistic recognition left, but mostly with to much lost of the original paintingskin and brushstrokes. So I went to the curtainstore searching for the right translucent effect. Finallly here it is, my first painting “Shirley”, based on a still of actress Shirley Temple, “wrapped” in nylon tulle. Ofcourse I’ve still lost some of the look of the paintskin and brucestrokes but the result is a so very interesting and unusual realistic, almost 3d look, that it’s worth it. I’ve covered several works with it but only the strong servive. There’s actually a kind of nice transition between a painting and photography.  It’s hard to get it right photographed but I’ll hope these will do.
