I painted this on a saturated piece of paper. It's fun to try to control the combination of water to paint when painting this way. It's important to add less water and more paint as the paper begins to dry. I put the paper on a piece of plexiglass while I was painting so the paper stayed super wet for a long time. It's a challenge to keep adding paint without getting blooms from having too much water in the brush. I've got a long way to go before I'll feel like I'm in control when painting this way.
When I wet this paper, I could tell that the sizing was gone. The paper becomes translucent when wet if there is no sizing. I didn't care about the lack of sizing because when the paper is saturated, it doesn't seem to matter if it's gone. I like the fuzzy, ethereal look that this painting has because of the combination of wet paper and lack of sizing.
