Watercolor Class Wrap-Up
This morning we had our "Experimental Watermedia Techniques" wrap-up class at the Arboretum. We all brought the pieces we've been working on since we created backgrounds a couple of weeks ago in class. Above is my whimsical piece. The technique was dipping cheesecloth in watercolors and then placing it on the paper to dry and create a textured background. But as mine was drying, I kept thinking of a fishnet. So I glued the cheesecloth to the paper, drew some little fish, and this is the result.
Below are a couple of backgrounds that I decided to try to calligraphy on. With the rough (coldpress) watercolor paper, I'm not really pleased about my letterforms. But I like the quotes.
