Using old paper…

Anyone who has taken my workshops knows how much emphasis I put on the ‘warming up’ process.    Like dancers and athletes, artists need to stretch each day. 

Rather than use fresh paper….use either unsuccessful sketches/paintings – or soiled paper…as in this brief demo. 


In this instance I used a felt tip pen to sketch out the subject using the colour already on the paper as part of the image. 



Final image, where I have added more watercolour and continue to allow the original marks to be part of the image.
