Someone gave me some Chinese Paper that is very porous. After thinking about it a while I decided to do a painting on it and let it bleed through to another sheet. I started my next painting with the “bleeder sheet” that was underneath. I added some watercolor and ink pen patterns to that. Last I started this character.. kind of felt like it came out of the paper.
