Volcano - A Work in Progress

I finally found my Oriental rice papers. I had put them away in a safe place and well, you know how that goes.

I splashed water onto the paper first. Using a 1" flat brush to move the paint around I put in Antwerp blue in first, then switched to alizarin crimson and finally added a little new gamboge.

While the paint was drying I pulled apart a few pieces of the rice paper to go onto the painting.

When the painting was completely dry I used matte medium to "glue" the paper in place. Then set it aside to dry.

I will post this painting at a later date once I decide how I want to finish it.
