The first wave not as effective…

Here’s where the magic of this watercolor technique begins. Dipping a Q-tip into the alcohol I proceed to tap and drip alcohol directly into the washes.

As the alcohol hit the wash it repeled the paint, pushing it away while leaving a lighter tint of the wash exposed.

Because the wash was so wet, I had to repeatedly drop alcohol onto the open areas to keep the flowing paint at bay.
