Watercolor on CP

I am continuing to try new techniques.. This time I stretched the paper as usual, but then re sized it with a mix of 1 part Gum Arabic to 4 Parts Water. I think Its a bit too much Gum Arabic because the watercolor doesn't get absorbed on the paper at all.

The result is interesting. The paint stays workable longer (thats the good news), but because it doesn't absorb, it lifts really easily, great for fixing errors, but makes glazing a real challenge (the bad news)

Great use of watercolour! I really like the blotchiness of the colours (which makes the painting very lively) and the linework (which defines the face and captures the likeness very well). Faved. :D

I have featured this deviation in my journal as a thumbnail because I like it and want my watchers to see it.

If you object to your work being displayed in this manor - I have every respect for you and will remove it as soon as I receive a note from you asking me to remove it.

Keep up the really great work.

Andy
