Day 60: (wed 3/1) watercolor splattering wash background

I saw this technique in a youtube video… you splatter color onto a dry page, then use a wet brush to push it around into a light loose wash. Once fully dry, you do an ink line drawing on top and shade with more color. The result can be much more interesting than a line drawing and watercolor on a white page. This isn’t a great representation, but I made several backgrounds and then tried a quick sketch. I’ll try more of these on my other backgrounds.
