Step One & Two Layered Watercolors

1) The artist first executes the watercolor (on 300 lb cold press paper) and tears away critical edges of the composition.He mounts the irregularly shaped painting on thin plywood which he shapes with a knife to further the painting’s “torn” or “broken-edged” appearance. (this step is not shown)

2) The watercolor is secured to a secondary plywood base and the artist paints the sculptural edges. (shown above)
