“Erased” Paintings

This is the opposite of the traditional technique. I roll lots of watercolor paint over non-absorbent paper. Then, with water, brush and rag, I lift the paint off where I want white.

It’s a nice break from the usual method. And the foreground is lifted up out of the background, almost like sculpting.
