Femme de feu II - step II... Pouring like crazy!

For step II, I laid the painting directly on the floor and started to pour a number of color mixes "à la Pollock" using pouring gel as medium...

I then moved colors a little trying not to destroy all the patterns that resulted from the pour. I used thick highlights with self-leveling gel for the hair and part of the face to bring the figure on the forefront. All in all, a rather awkward an unnerving exercise for me since it's the first time that I use this technique... still, there is the promise of greater freedom!
