Watercolour Washes with Gold Leaf

One of the most enjoyable, relaxing and insprirational activity with watercolour is an experiment with washes. The magic as the colours you have selected take on a life of their own and move and fuse is exciting. The pigment only goes where you direct it with water and angling the paper. If you are stuck for something to paint, this is a great starting point. Gold leaf also adds drama to your work.
