Ok… here’s the real deal:
I was painting and using a piece of paper towel to dab excess paint and ink from the rice paper paintings I did earlier in the week. When I went to throw away the paper towel, I saw so much color and the vibrancy of this scrap just screamed at me… screamed so loudly that I couldn’t toss this… just couldn’t do it. So I tore the sheet in half and made two small paintings that I’ll probably use as backgrounds for collage later on.
This is a mixed media painting made with watercolor, metallic inks, and acrylic on paper towel.
