watercolour + gauze"
I laid strips of cotton gauze in various ways on a blue wash ... wet on dry ,wet in wet , wet gauze , painted gauze,wet gauze.... to see different textures and effects that could be made .... I'd like to try this with a finer and larger pieces of gauze ...the gauze dries relatively quickly .
....a few years ago we visited Zentrum Paul Klee museum in Bern Switzerland ..the collection was incredible... ...Paul Klee employed watercolour on gauze and paper in his painting " Ab ovo."
