The above is a fragment of the same painting showing a little of the drawing of the mayan ritual.
While letting my third painting for the Fossil series dry, I decided to try another acrylic and ink pour because they are so much faster and dry quickly. After I had managed to sort of control my pours and let them dry, I thought I would try to incorporate some Mayan figures to the whole piece. This I thought of a little too late because I had already brushed on an acrylic sealer. Neverhteless, I tried to draw in some figures from one of the famous paintings in the Mayan Site Chichen Itza. The real painting is depicting The Battle of Jaguars which was a ritual in that culture. Unofrtunately my drawing of part of this painting does not show up. next time I think I will draw in the my theme first and then pour over. Since I had thought of this after the pour was down, the colors are definitely not the Mayan colors. I will try the next one with the colors the mayans were so well noted for.
