Today I painted some paper using a layering technique with paint brushes, dry brushes and sponges to get some texture for backgrounds. I used a combination of water color and acrylic paint.
Some of these are a bit spotty but they should still work OK for backgrounds.
Some of the paper was wet first and then painted. Others were painted on to dry paper.
This one I painted by dragging a sponge across dry paper. It was painted in two different layers.
This one has multiple layers starting with yellow and adding blues and greens.
This one was done with a small cosmetic sponge so doesn’t have as much texture as the bigger sponges.
The lines are from a dry brush technique just dragging the brush across the paper.
We’re supposed to be working on getting a feeling of movement.
It was fun just to play with paint and be a little looser.
Not sure what all these will turn into but now I have a variety of painted papers to play with. Have a good weekend.
