Playing with wax and watercolor again on rice paper. Much planning is required to paint this way. You divide your composition in 5 values, then paint and wax each time. Eventually, you have a wax-coated paper that you have no idea what it will look like until you iron it and remove the wax. The technique definitely keeps you loose!
