textures - watercolour + hessian

"hessian and watercolour" 
texture swatch 

another texture swatch ,which a friend suggested to try ,  this time with hessian using an old potatoe sack... you can still see the fibres on the painting .
....here I wet the paper in some areas leaving it dry in other areas to see the diferences when I laid down the painted hessian ... as the hessian absorbs so much water and pigment  I decided to pour the remaining  pigment on top of the hessian on the lhs when the paper was flat  ..the result is a bit of a mess but it's interesting how it dried .
.... although  the weave is much larger and coarser than gauze  the resulting patterns / imprint  are  similiar to the gauze above
...thanks again Jean for your suggestion.

It's great to stretch oneself by experimenting. I like the effects you achieved. It could make a very interesting abstract background. A nice blue too. Is it a W&N?
