Using “Back Washes” As A Technique For Painting Abstract Background Texture
Before the flood
MATERIALS USED: Arches CP #140 watercolor paper, a 1½” Winsor & Newton Series 965 wash brush, #8 round red sable.
COLORS USED: Permanent Rose, Cobalt Blue.
For this watercolor technique, I start by mixing a large wash of Cobalt Blue and laying in a large loose wash from the upper left corner on across the top of the paper.
I used my 1 ½” wash brush for the color washes.
