Tearing Things Up

M. Graham and Schmincke gouache with acrylic on 140 lb Canson cold press watercolor paper

I started this one by blocking out the negative space with acrylic. Then I used M. Graham gouache for the pear. I had everything just about how I wanted it, and was burnishing off some of the paint from the highlights. Aaaaaaand I rubbed off about a square inch of the top layer of paper. Oopsie!

I used a little bit of acrylic to glue down and cover the skinned bit. Then I went back over it with a little more gouache.

The background acrylic has a layer of Schmincke gouache over the acrylic.

I have no idea what these are, but they caught my eye this morning as I was walking into the loading dock at work.
