I love creating cyanotypes where the actual brush strokes of the cyanotype liquid can be seen. In this artwork I used a large, rough brush to lay on the liquid, leaving the edges of the piece loose and rough. I then used the protective plastic gloves I painted it with as the subject of the piece. It’s a “self portrait” and a “how it was made” – I suppose an original form of the selfie.
This is an unframed piece of 12-inch by 16-inch watercolor paper. It is the original unique work of art. The background color is the natural color of watercolor paper.
