Okay, madness is a bit strong. I took today’s postcard and covered it with a piece of white rice paper. As I considered what to do I decided to stay all white. Okay, that could be monotonous, but I decided to go with it. I took some diaphanous white rice paper with threads and placed that over the other rice paper. I got a nice texture and they were just slightly different shades of white. I was going to place another white paper over that but I didn’t like the fact that it would introduce hard edges. Instead I got out my Titanium white acrylic and lightly applied that to some areas. I then added just a smidge of brown watercolor that was on my palette and washed in some pale beige. I tempered it with a bit more white to make sure to keep my monochromatic theme. Finally, I took a small brush and used the Titanium white on just some of the threads to highlight them a bit. There you have it – a study in white and texture. Perhaps that should have been the name of the post.
