Painting Thru Tissue Paper and SPRING HARMONY

SPRING HARMONY
Watercolor 11x15

This painting was started as a demo for my weekly classes. I began by wetting the watercolor paper and then laying a piece of regular tissue paper that had been crinkled some on top. I then applied the wateroclors as if I were doing a regular wet on wet painting. The paint will soak thru the tissue creating fantastic texure in the underpainting. When all was dry I removed the tissue and finished up the flowers using alot of negative paiting. This is a great way to loosen up your painting style!
