This Christmas Tree is a watercolor first painted on watercolor paper and then mounted on Chinese Macau paper. The White Chinese Paper comes in 30 × 60 inch sheets. I quarter the paper first then I “stain” the background of each quarter with watercolors. After they dry I hand tear the paper into card size pieces. I then consider the painted paper to create the next layer of my work.
