I've Been Experimenting - Tissue Paper and Watercolour.

Mary Kemp - Rusting Boat
Watercolour  20 x 25 cms
I've seen this boat over several years now. It sits on the marshes. Someone started to renovate it but they haven't done anything for several seasons. I keep expecting to find it finished and ready to sail away, or even to be suddenly, inexplicably gone, but there it remains.
I wanted to convey the untidy nature of the rusting hull so I glued some tissue paper to a piece of Bockingford paper and let the wrinkles permeate the whole painting.
