This week, for our Watercolor Plus class, we were supposed to create another painting using rice papers and watercolor. This time we were to search for more realism by using a photo reference or for allowing the pigment and the papers to lead us to a more realistic image. The above is what I came up with.
The above shows the sequence of the painting as I created it with rice paper collage and watercolor pigment. All without photo reference! What fun!
