MOONLITE 032910 (15 x 25)
Gessoed watercolor board, salt, gouache, a discarded watercolor painting, bubble wrap stamping.
Using a piece of watercolor board I applied gesso thickly with a piece of mat board. I loosely layed tissue paper pieces, different sizes, into the with gesso then sprinkled table salt all over the piece. I let this dry overnight. The next day I painted a wash of closely related colors on the color wheel over the whole surface. When dry I added painted rice papers and a discarded watercolor painting securing these pieces with matte medium. I then added gouache and watercolor and stamped with bubble wrap. At the focal point I used the complement of the related colors. In this particular piece I used blue-purple, blue and blue-green with the complement of blue which is orange.
