Mystery Technique #51

Are you curious about how this was done? I’ll explain next month, so be sure to sign up for email updates to find out!



This collage began with loosely painted watercolor shapes. After they dried, I tore and crumpled pieces of Unryu paper before placing them on part of the painting’s surface.  By brushing matte acrylic medium on top of the Unryu,  I glued it down while emphasizing its translucency and long fibers. I also added a multi-layered collage fragment near the center. After the matte medium dried,  I used thin washes of acrylic ink in a few places to create a greater sense of unity.
