Calla Lillies

The backgrounds in this series are worked with plastic wrap.
I lay the plastic wrap over a still very wet wash, manipulate it into place and let dry completely.
Easy, fun and part of a paper decorating workshop
 I loved doing with my elementary and middle school art students.

  1. I have tried the plastic wrap technique several times, and I never manage to get anything as pretty as this, just need more practice i guess.... this is stunning Carmella!

  2. Thank you Sheila! I have found that once you place the wrap over your wet watercolor wash you must work quickly.
    Move it around too much or for more than a minute and you loose that great wrinkled effect. I also go back into it after its dry and play up some sections with more paint.
