It looks really effective. I see it as a cliff face with lots of foliage on the top! I love all your textual experiments :0)

Hello Jane:) This is beautiful! I see a big lake, rocks and trees? How ever: a lot of texture. Very nice colors. Great work!

Christiane Kingsley ha detto...

Jane, this is beautiful. I have used this technique with acrylics, but never thought of trying it with watercolors. Thank you for sharing.

Cynthia Schelzig ha detto...

mmmmm looks fabulous!! My first impression was that it was glass jars filled with flowers reflecting onto a shiny table:)

Tissue does add interesting dimension. This experiment came out quite well.

Watercolorist ha detto...

Experimenting is fun. Have you ever read any of Ann Blockley's books on creating textures with watercolors?

hi sharon ..there are many references of artist using gesso and gesso and tissue paper you might find these references interesting :

i used white tissue on top of watercolour paper here and applied gesso on the top of it ...let it dry and then applied watercolour ... ...gesso can make beautiful surface textures if applied to watercolour paper in small areas (you can see it on a bamboo painting excercise i did )...coloured tissue without gesso is also beautiful .
i mentioned ann blockley and john blockley in a previous post ..shirley trevena is a great ref too.


hello sergio thankyou !

christiane thanks i've a lot to learn can see lots of potential esp with buildings façades etc... i'll have to try it with acrylics

hi cynnie like your interpretation thankyou.

hi jean ..i love experimenting ...yes i have..i mentioned ann's book as a reference in a previous post on gesso and watercolour.

hi katharyn interesting doing these swatches ...end result isn't that important at the moment ..thankyou

Hello Jane. What wonderful paintings you make. Gesso + watercolors, beautiful final. I think to see mountains and reflect in water, is it ok?. It is brilliant. Warm regards

JANE MINTER ha detto...

Crystal Cook ha detto...

That is fantastic Jane. For a minute I thought it was glass jars with lights inside. I love it. :)

Blaga ha detto...

This is sooo interesting! I love your experiments, Jane!

John (JWJarts) ha detto...

This is something I do far too little of - experimenting. Looks like great fun.

Judith Farnworth Art ha detto...

Have also done a bit of experimenting with tissue paper......great fun, did some ducks and a tree trunk ages ago... seeing this has reminded me how effective it is especially if we're looking for texture in our work

John Simlett ha detto...

Wow! It's like a fairy mangrove ... Absolutely blooming amazing!

I'm back, by the way!
