Playing Games #uskathome Day Twenty Four

Before supper today my daughter was playing with these little animals, making a world for them from the place mats and other objects on the table. But we were hungry and late, and time was short. The sketch was poor so I decided to try out wet on wet colouring that I had read about on Marc Taro Holmes blog this morning.

What I learned was what I already suspected: that this paper is not good enough for watercolour techniques. Especially so because I was using the back of the previous day’s sketch and the paper already had wrinkles into which the water flowed, taking pigment with it to form bands and backruns.
