For those of you who have never seen someone pour, I'm including a photo of myself in action. Each of the paintings take a long time to complete because there is so much waiting time between each pour. Jean taught us another fun painting technique to try while we were waiting. We used something called wash out tape which we stretched across the watercolor paper overlapping the strips. Then we used a quilter's rotary cutter to cut a design through just the tape. The cut pieces were removed leaving some exposed wc paper. Using a brush we painted across the tape and across these sections. Jean also did a lesson on texturing, so I used some of those methods in the painted areas of my tropical painting.
