It Worked!!

Finished product
It Actually worked! My wash-off on the large board idea, was successful!
I photographed the stages and posted them below, the image on the left is the final stage.
First I applied a good few layers of gesso, so the gouache would have something to hold onto, after the gouache I applied the ink. Then washed it off with a hose. The board is 48X48 inches. I don't think I will do anymore to it, hopefully my tutors will like it..

"The wonder of the world, the beauty and the power,
the shapes of things, their colours, lights and shades; these i saw.
Look ye also while life lasts. "
