More fun with line and wash, this time on butcher paper at the Rangoli Indian restaurant near San Jose.
Not only is the food outstanding, but they cover the tables in butcher paper and I always like to have a go at something – pen and ink, graphite wash, technical pens, and today watercolor.
This was done really fast – pen line drawing, then a #5 travel brush and a simple palette of four colors. Butcher paper is not particularly friendly to watercolor–it soaks up water like crazy at first, but when it’s full it puddle easily. 🙂
Two of the wait staff came over afterwards, and mentioned that quite a few of their customers make a habit of drawing on the butcher paper. Wish I could have seen some others, but I was the only one drawing during lunch today.
