Elul: skies of blue, clouds of white

Usually in watercolor, white is 'created' by not painting over an area on the paper or by scraping the paper to remove the paint in a certain area. The rice paper collage process does not allow for white to appear due to all the layers and my very wet painting process which allows colors to bleed in many different ways. However, for this piece, I could not figure out any other way to achieve clouds without using white. I am more pleased than I expected to be.

  1. Two of my favorite things as is evidenced in many of the pictures I take. I have them posted in a set in Flickr and of course, on my computer. Lovely works, dear friend.
