Embellishing Podling Print

This is an experimental film bit I shot during the process of embellishing this print. Thought I'd play around with cuts and speed. This giclee is printed from a painting I did entitled, "Podlings".  It is a giclee printed on watercolor paper and I am using Winsor Newton gouache to add some touch ups. This was the first time I embellished a print in this way, making it more expressive and let it stand on its own as a one of a kind piece.  It is currently available  in my Etsy. The music is a loop I composed in an app called Korg iKaossilator on the Ipad, its super fun! It's available in the app store.
