Tissue paper, Texture and Giraffes

GIRAFFE EYES
Watercolor - 11x15

I painted this as a class demo when we used tissue paper to create texture. I wet the watercolor paper, placed the crumpled tissue paper down and then painted in areas of color for the background and the giraffe. When all was dry I removed the tissue and continued painting to add definition and details. This is a great way to loosen up if you tend to be tight with your watercolors!
