Fake Watercolor

• The original watercolor was photographed in Black/White film and printed on high contrast Black/White Agfa paper.

• Colors were added to the back of the film with felt tip markers while occasionally blending the colors with the fingers.
• The original watercolor paper texture is visible but the colors are not watercolors.

Inserting lighter fluid in the marker, such as the Magic Marker from the old days, will extend its life for some time while at times making the color a bit lighter.

  1. I have come across your blog and have been reading along. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  2. I detect an artist in you and wonder if you’d be interested in women’s fashions. Being frugal and yet staying fashionable is something that many women will appreciate an opinion on and an advice. Would you be interested in adding a page devoted to fashions (men’s as well). Not all of us can afford super expensive famous couturiers’ clothes, but all women (or most of us) would like to look attractive, stylish, original but…stay on a budget at the same time. Let’s invite women to make their comments, share their experiences and photos covering this very exciting topic. I am willing to share my ideas and experiences. Good luck to us!
