#49 - stencils and watercolor
#49 of 200...keeping it short and simple tonight. I keep asking myself if I could use stencils with watercolors and I have found out the answer. Yes you can if you are painting on Yupo papers but not of traditional watercolor paper. This is because the paint stays on top of the Yupo paper rather than soaking in on watercolor paper. The only trick is to leave the stencil on while paint dries or just about dried.
This painting was a much larger painting that I cut down. It was supposed to be an abstract poppy but it didn't work out as planned so I cut it to fit the mat. Oh well, off to try another.
