1 . 23 . 2016   ... A repost from last year, ...  A small demo watercolor 5" x 8 1/2".... used a spritz of pure rubbing alcohol to get a textured appearance. This demo was also done directly on gesso'd #400 weight rough Arches' paper...  I think it was the gesso'd paper that contributed to the alcohol's reaction with the paint.
