Finished example: alcohol and watercolor

I finished playing around and set the painting aside to dry.

Alcohol and watercolor don’t mix well. The results of their fight on the paper is strangely organic in nature and not achievable using any other technique.

The “fish eyes” are a signature of this technique, so it’s obvious to other painters what you are up to.

Use it judiciously or with total abandon, it’s your nickel.
