Experiments in Transparency

I'm posting a few of the experiments I've been doing in vellum, and mylar (for the last one). I'm fascinated by the effect, although I think I much prefer the vellum to the mylar. Especially on the sphinx moth (the pink one). It has a lot of potential in the area of subtlety.

I like the colors in the first one. But then again I'm also a big fan of mylar <3

Thank you! It's the colors and gradients that have me so interested in vellum/mylar. And I like the mylar, but I don't think in a piece of work I would layer so much mylar on mylar, I'd break it up so that more color came through.
