Just over a week ago I had a post on flat washes
Then I went on to discuss the Beaded Wash.
Now I will tell you how to get a flat wash using a wet paper wash.
(That isn’t the technical term- it is just what I call it)
First, mix up your color in a recyclable container.
Then wet your paper with water using your hake brush.
Once wet, apply the color that you mixed using a criss-cross motion.
After I have done this, I like to tilt my board/paper to make sure the water and paint has been distributed evenly.
(see the paint moving)
Then I will wipe up the excess paint off with a paper towel.
Leave flat to dry.
For my painting, Sisters, I masked out the 2 girls and did a flat wet paper wash for the background.
