After taking some time away from plein air painting, I was looking for a different "something" to do during the Winter. My friend, Sandra, had attended a painted paper workshop taught by Anne Bagby (see her website at http://www.annebagby.com/)
Sandra and I spent two days experimenting with the wonderful ideas that come with painting on different types of tissue paper. The entire process is hard to explain...so I'd suggest you visit Anne's website to see the exciting things she does with paint and paper.
Beginning with a 12"x12" paper, layers of paint, stamping, stenciling, etc are applied. The paper can be turned until a theme or object becomes clear.
