I worked on saturated paper for this painting and played with the push/pull of color and value. I got the background too dark so I used white watercolor to lighten it up and really like the effect. I don't usually used white watercolor because that is considered a no no to watercolor purists and that is how I was taught to paint, but I don't think we should be constrained by such rules when creating. It was very freeing to do something that goes against what I was taught to do. It makes me feel like such a rebel. 😉
