fall field and multi- media board
I wanted to talk a little more about the multimedia board I mentioned last post. Although I really like it now, my first impression was not so favorable. I struggled with the watercolor. The board has no, absolutely no absorbency. It does not feel like watercolor paper. So now I treat it differently. I made friends with it. I let it pool. I wipe it. I make it run. I like the way it is inconsistent.
The pastel goes on differently as well. I left this image large so you can see. It's a way to feel texture on location.
Here is the watercolor underpainting. I like that it runs and joins shapes.
