Watercolor and Saran Wrap!

This next project was something I learned in a class several years ago, but I was still working on the prior project so I never actually tried this until today. 

First I sprayed the paper with a water squirt bottle.  Then I dropped some paint on in a random way.  Then I cut up some pieces of saran and layed them on the work and squished them in.  In some areas I added more paint under the saran with a brush. 

I let it dry overnight.

Then I pulled the saran wrap off.  It makes interesting geometric shapes.  I think I looks like shards of colored glass. 

Next I will accent areas, maybe enhance more color, maybe to bring out shapes it reminds me of.....
