It seems more like a “puddle method” to me) Wet the surface of the paper… apply watercolor, watch it run and creep and puddle. When it is dry, sketch an image into it. I LOVE this method. It is really fun and relaxing, and perfect when I can’t think of something to paint. (Also… it really shows off those creeping tendrilly attributes of my QoR paints.)
