11" x 15" Watercolor
Today in my painting class, we played with watercolor abstracts on textured paper. You can't see the texture very well in the photo, but it was made with a mixture of spackling paste and a little matte medium. Then spread onto the paper with a foam brush. Then I created texture using combs and other things and let it dry (overnight is best).
Now I'm not sure if it's finished yet, or if I even like it! I have 2 more papers ready to paint, so maybe I'll do those and see what's what!
Check out this link to see other fabulous abstracts!
