yes I did - and it didn't show through at all until I sprayed hairspray a little too heavily, to fix it - which made the ink come through a bit. The page was very very slightly buckling on the reverse but not on the front side. It isn't designed for washes so I wouldn't complain about that.
thanks for the nice comments everyone
This is the latest - in the Epsilon.
I took my mother to the dentist and I waited in the car and sketched. It was raining hard so I decided to tackle the challenge of catching the wavering, distorted lines seen through the rain splashes and constantly moving/changing trickles on the windscreen. I added a bit of the dashboard and steering wheel to show the contrast of things seen clearly, though shadowed and things seen quite distorted.
It would have been a very different image if I had worked from a photo - a frozen second of time, clear, sharp, all distortions clearly seen. But that isn't how we experience
the world so to me it was more interesting to try to catch the changeability and blur of the real experience - I hope that makes sense?
