Crumpled # 43
After reading Kelly's technique on her warbler, I got a whim to try something really different. My aim was to capture an antique effect .... but I have to admit I'm not wild about the end result. But I'll let you all see what my whim led to.
I inked the great blue heron first, then crumpled my watercolor paper before adding the washes. I figured the paint would sink into the creases a little more than where the paper was still smooth. Oh, yes, I ended up ironing the end result so it would scan half way decently.
