Black watercolor and black gouache on printer paper, 8.5″ x 11″
During the past week I’ve been making sketches like these and also experimenting with paint recipes. In a couple of days I’ll post about the results that I’ve been getting in these experiments. For example, as I’m posting this I’m in the middle of comparing the absorption of diatomaceous earth with bentonite clay in watercolor medium. The earth is absorbing far less of the medium than the clay, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
