Transfer technique

Experimenting with new materials. This time "Transfer technique". Use a laserprint  copy of a photo, rub the image side in with Acrylic Binder, and glue it on paper (which should have a coat of wet acrylic binder as well). After a day you can rub off the copy paper with some lukewarm water, and the mirrored image is stuck to the canvas. Then paint over it, trying to preserve parts of the original and yet making something new out of it.
The image was based on a combination of two photos I once made in India. The result may not be very good, but it was a first try, and as such worth trying.
