6″ x 8″ Golden Fluid Acrylic on 240 lb Watercolor Paper
This project started when my friend, Deloras taught me a trick she uses often in her paintings. She actually uses these sheets for her “found” paintings, but I didn’t “find” anything in this sheet, so I used it for something else. Deloras finds one little something that she can build a painting around and her paintings are wonderful.
In this painting, I used a piece of a sheet of watercolor paper that I had prepared earlier. I dribbled pure acrylic color haphazardly across a piece of watercolor paper, then smooshed saran wrap on it and let it dry. The full sheet below shows what you have when you pull the saran wrap off. I cut off a 6″ x 8″ piece, then marked a border around it and taped it down to a board, covering the border. After I did the 5″ x 7″ painting, I pulled the tape off and was pleasantly surprised by the way the border looked.
I used the other part of the paper, too. I’ll show you tomorrow what I did with it. Very fun!
