15x20 watercolor on the back of an old dog that wasn't worth trying to make better. I spritzed water then threw paint loosely with 1" brush in wide areas using NO PENCIL. Let dry, then began to carve out red, pink, and all shades in between of poinsettia leaves with green at bottom of potted plant. Background is neutral with UB, Coastal Fog mix and some Periwinkle Blue (American Journey) colors.
Total time about 1.5 hours; not too bad for a quickie!
22x15 Fabriano 140 lb hot press paper, charcoal drawing of a mannikin profile, then watercolor, gouache, and gift wrap paper from Dollar General used as collage in parts on her blouse. The hot press paper was treated first using a technique Liz Hill taught us in her class last month where you lay phone book pages, masking tape, or other paper on top then peel it off before it dries (adhere with matte medium). It will come off in strips and pieces. If you love texture you'd like playing with it There's no wrong way or right way with this method.
12.5 x 22 watercolor on Italia 140 lb paper from one of my many Taos photos taken in 2007. I changed the local color to be a white building with red orange roof (transparent pyrrol orange by Daniel Smith) and made the sky dark and ominous. This is the most photographed church in America.
