WAIMEA CANYON, Kawaii, watercolor on gray paper

WAIMEA CANYON, Kawaii, 7.5x10 "(19x25 cm.) watercolor on gray paper

TECHNIQUE: As I like to experiment with different surfaces, this watercolor was painted on gray paper, its surface intended for pencil, crayon and pastels. I challenged myself to see how I could work it with watercolor. I had to use white gouache for the whites, since the surface was gray, but it worked, as you can see! This is one of the paintings in my large Carnet de Voyage, created by Alvaro Castagnet. Alvaro is a fantastic watercolorist from Uruguay.
