Here are four small paintings I did tonight as samples for my senior citizen class tomorrow.  I learned this crumpled paper technique from my artist friend Jimmy Tablante.  I need a lot more practice.  When done correctly, it gives lots of texture to a watercolor painting.





If anyone is interested, I can explain how to do it.  Very easy.  Best part is that if you make painting mistakes, they are easy to fix.

I think I can adapt it to my line and wash style.

Mea, I am interested too. I am background challenged and think that this method would be great for it.  I recall that either Dennis or Nolan mentioned crumpled cellophane paper in one of the lessons but can't remember which lesson.

This technique uses crumpled tracing paper as the surface to paint on.  I was so excited to try it that I used the wrong type of tracing paper.  Need SOFT tracing paper.  Mine was too hard so doesn't look as good.

I will write up the directions and send it later.  Have to prep for my senior citizen class right now.

Those look really nice Mea! Cool technique. I'll file this one away for someday when I start painting.

OK, here it is.  Do note that I give credit to my artist friend Jimmy Tablante who developed the technique using tracing paper to create the textured look.  He is an amazing artist and always so willing to share his skills.

I hope you enjoy using this technique as much as I do.

I am loving this crumpled paper technique.  Paintings work up so quickly.

I think a rooster lends itself well to this style.

I have seen this technique and it really lends to some awesome results.  I have seen a tree done this way and the bark looked amazing.  You are doing well with it and love the rooster.   I am sure your students are having a ball ! :yippee:
