Winter Nap by Larry Lerew 170101

8" x 10" Watercolor Wax Resist on White Bond Copy Paper, Unframed.

Starting a new year of painting and want to devote attention to "Wax Resist".
Want to explore different mediums and approaches to this technique.
This painting using white wax crayon and watercolor paint was interesting on white bond copy paper.
I liked the results, but this paper was to thin for scraping and did not want to hold a crisp edge.
The soft edges were nice. Lifting color was impossible since the pigment absorbed into the paper and seemed to stain it. I did manage to retain lots of whites both with the brush and wax. Over all I was happy with my painting. If you have any comments, please feel free.
