Paper Iris

This will be another 11" x 14" piece on canvas board. This time when I mounted the newspaper to the board I purposely bunched it up to give a lot of texture.

I tried to do a sketch in pencil first but it proved to difficult with the wrinkled paper so I went straight to ink.

 The next step would normally be watercolor but I have better results with watered down acrylics. This step establishes the color and feel of the piece.

Time to take a break and look at the piece with a fresh eye.
