Today I am painting lace. I have started a watercolor of a silver gravy boat full of roses and the background has white lace over purple cloth. The white is the paper (you don't normally use white paint in watercolors, but let the paper show through for the white), so I am painting the little purple spots and the lace is formed by the white of the paper. It takes a bit of time, but I love doing it!I probably won't finish it by tomorrow, but if not, I will show you the progress made. Stay tuned! Click on it to better see the sketch and how I am painting it.
