Wan Lee describes how he used watercolor pouring technique in painting Mississippi River rocks
Editor’s note: In this post, Wan describes how he went about creating his watercolor of rocks in the Mississippi River. His painting is currently part of the show “Summer Work” at the CHAW Gallery, 545 7th Street, SE, Washington, DC.
Wan Lee: Mouth of the Mississippi
This is the original photograph that I wanted to paint.
After I drew the picture I put masking fluid on the rocks and then poured different colors of paint on the paper. I tilted the painting so the paint would flow over it and mix together a little bit..
This shows the painting after the paint was poured on it.
I rubbed the dried masking fluid off the rocks, which I then painted individually, as shown in the final version, below.
