textures - string + watercolour

"wet on wet + painted string/twine" 

"initial wash painted string wet on dry + second wash  wet on wet painted string"

"wet on wet wash + painted string"

"wet on dry wash + wet string "

"painted string + circles "

....above are a few initial swatches showing textures created with string / twine + watercolour using circular motions...I was asked if  I'd ever tried using string when I posted "aluminium foil + watercolour washes"  ..thankyou Jean for your suggestion.

Hello Jane:) I love the beautiful effects you had with the watercolor + string. Only, I do not exactly what you mean by string. In duch it is underwear:) Google doesn't give a propiate translation. Please explaine. Thank you!

judy the suggestion was given to me by jean's similiar to using compasses for drawing circles ....hold one end of the string and turn the other end in a circle clockwise/anti - clockwise ...effects are interesting ..thanks

These are so interesting Jane. Thanks for the explanation-I thought at first you laid the string into the wash. Maybe we can try that too!

hi christy thanks ... sorry didn't make it clear i laid string on a wet wash in the last three blue washes at the bottom
2 of the washes were with the string painted ..the last one with the string just wet and no paint .

Hai Jane:) It was the last thing I expected. At least, when I'm right: a twine of a tree? :) Thank you for explaining!!
