The accidental water colour portrait.

My water colour skills suddenly sky rocket when I try to print a photograph of my godfather but feed glossy paper wrong side up into the printer...

Scary, huh...?

Scary, huh...?

Unfortunately, it doesn't last. The ink doesn't adhere to the surface. That's what makes it look so great, but it's also what makes this technique self destructive. 

I'm pretty sure there is an analogy to life-in-general somewhere in there...

 

(Oh, also: don't try this at home! It messes up your printer. The ink gets stuck everywhere inside and leaves marks on the next prints you'll make. Don't say I haven't warned you.... )
