Looking at ways of illustrating the texture of the printed flowers on the beach towel.
First I have tried adding dots of glue to raise up the texture of the paper. Gives an interesting effect but fairly dominating like dots and not an accurate representation of towel texture.
Next I have very smooth yupo paper as the base and tried to draw texture with watercolour. Mild success I would say.
Thirdly I have textured the paper with a stanley knife prior to doing a little tester painting. I was very happy with the way the watercolour went into the channels giving the appearance of a drypoint. Excited by this.
