After the first background was was left to dry, the paper was completely wet again and a second set of washes laid down.
These also had to be left to dry.
This painting technique needs a great deal of patience - or a pile of ironing!
This is one of my "secrets"
Between very wet washes that need to be bone dry before you paint again, I go off and iron at least four garments.
That way when I return, my painting is ready for the next stage!
Feel free to use that technique :lol:
