Pouring Water Color

Working on some poured water color paintings this weekend.  I love the many layers and the beautiful surprises you have when you remove the masking fluid.

Here are the beginning pictures of the process....

After several layers of masking, water color and drying
our finished work....

Pouring water color can really give you some amazing results.  I saw how to do it by watching a you tube video.  You tube has a lot of great art tutorials.

Have fun creating and enjoy the processes - Erika
