drawings and watercolours by jane minter
Hi, Jane, Brilliant!!!Cheers,Sadami
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)
Great experiment, beautiful colours!
Hello Jane:) This is beautiful! I see a big lake, rocks and trees? How ever: a lot of texture. Very nice colors. Great work!
I don't know anything about gesso - would love to know more about this technique you've used , it looks great
Interesante textura, me gusta.
Jane, this is beautiful. I have used this technique with acrylics, but never thought of trying it with watercolors. Thank you for sharing.
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.
Experimenting is fun. Have you ever read any of Ann Blockley's books on creating textures with watercolors? Jean
I love it, Jane! What a fascinating painting. The textures and colors are wonderful.

Non ho mai provato cose di questo genere, ma devo dire che il risultato è molto bello e interessante. Complimenti Jane! Ciao.
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
hope you try tito ! grazie millesounds good eva... thankyou :)
That is fantastic Jane. For a minute I thought it was glass jars with lights inside. I love it. :)
This is sooo interesting! I love your experiments, Jane!
This is something I do far too little of - experimenting. Looks like great fun.
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
Wow! It's like a fairy mangrove ... Absolutely blooming amazing!I'm back, by the way!
That's a really interesting effect. I like it.
