Staying home today

Title - 'Staying home today'
Size - 20 x 28 inch
Medium - Watercolor on paper

The paper I used for this one is not a watercolor paper. It is a regular drawing sheet and has no texture at all. It is rather slippery. I am just experimenting on this paper right now as it comes very cheap. Rs 10 (less than a quarter of a $) per sheet. Most of the techniques either do not work or work only partially on this. But it is worth experimenting on this. I am posting WIP pictures of the painting so that you can get an idea how did I go about this one.

The painting is really good, Prabal.You have worked in layers, it seems..You re saying it was an ordinary paper-How did the paper respondto layers?Did it warp? Doesn't look like it, though!Well done.

Prabal said...

PC, Dipti,
Thank you.

Crystal,
Actually I am too lazy. This was a new paper. So I thought of recording how things were going. Otherwise by nature I would not do it. But I'll try to do this more often.

Arti,
This paper was the normal drawing sheet but quiet thick one. I think locally it is known as chart paper. When I wet the paper to do wet in wet it wrapped. So I worked in layers and going from one area to the other. That way the paper held up.
