Thanks, Konrad! Yin and Yang is a tenet of Chinese philosophy that says seemingly contrary forces are in fact interconnected and dependent upon one another. I mentioned it above because of the way that first image resembles the classic Yin/Yang design:

Oil and water with a colorful bg(?). Have seen other photos and it looks fun to do but have never tried.

Fun results and pretty!

I love the look of these pictures! I'm just dipping my fingers into photography and trying to soak up all the information and ideas that I can. How did you get these very cool shots?

Thanks, guys! I've had a lot of fun with this technique. I've exhibited some, and given a couple away as baby gifts. They make nice wall decor for a nursery. The colors are determined by the background you choose.

Mel, here are the instructions I used.

Oil on Water Photographs

I've seen some good results using gift wrap as the background. I paint my backgrounds on foam core. I recommend taking the pictures outdoors in bright sun. The process can be messy if you have a spill, so I'd rather not do it in the house.

If you try this, anyone, please share your results!
