Having experimented with different colours to portray my moods, emotions and thoughts. I began experimenting with different mediums.. I used watercolour.. however it dried very matte and as I see my thoughts as very fluid I would like to keep a glossy finish- for this i will experiment with varnishing the painting once it has dried.
I also experimented with dye, both powered and ink. Both of these produced brilliant vibrant colours, but also dried very matte, also the colours bled more when varnished.
I experimented again with food dye as I had in second year and it allows bleeding while retaining its glossy texture. I still like the idea that it changes over time as your memories change
