This is a piece of nonsense, but a lot of fun all the same.
The task was to cover a piece of watercolour paper with random wet in wet colours. It was then covered in cling film and the cling film was scrunched up. After leaving it to dry a random coloured pattern was revealed. After studying it for some time, I could just make out a boat emerging from the sea. This initial "pattern" was developed using St Petersburg White Nights watercolour, Turners acrylic gouache and pastel to reveal the Black Pearl in all her glory.
A piece of hand-made paper from India was used, measuring approximately 15" by 11". The deckled edges all the way around it are just great.
