Tissue Paper Watercolor





I thought I would publish all of my tissue paper watercolor projects together to show you all the variations that my students have explored so far. The top one is industrial/architectual. 
I found a rooster calendar that served as inspiration for the second one. The students used different types of papers to layer and then use watercolor ground in the shape of the rooster and then watercolor over top the ground to get the vibrant colors.
The third one is the original sunflower exploring the shape of the sunflower from different angles. 
And the last one was from a children's class, just gaining experience with painting on texture. We used acrylic paint for this one.
The technique is described here
