If you weren't here for Day #2 of 5 last week, my process details are below:
I learned this method in February (2016) from Lian Quan Zhen.As with most things I am taught, the more I use it, the more my methods deviate from my instructor and become my own.
Paper - Arches 140# cold press
Paint - In this case only Antwerp Blue, Joe's Red and Bumblebee Yellow, but I premix into six dishes
Loew Cornell ultra rounds, because they hold a point well
Spray Bottle with water
First, I mask off white and yellow areas with removable masking fluid.
Then, I spritz the paper lightly and randomly with water. Next, I dribble paint. I give some consideration to where colors will be in the finished product, but I don't have a firm plan at this point. In the case of the butterflies, I did make sure to put orange there. I use a straw to blow the paint around. I use my large brushes and my finger to move puddles of color together to blend in some places.
It makes a great foundation for negative painting in many areas moving forward.
