This next piece developed from a tester I did before the final exhibition piece. I wanted to see what the 1 metre board would look like if I first put wallpaper on to it then painted magnolia over it. By doing this it would emphasize the idea of someone coming into a new home and replacing the old decor. The bumps in the wallpaper somehow did seem so aesthetically pleasing to me though which made me go off the idea. I really like the build up of the roller marks in this piece-they really emphasize the layers.
