Backdrawing

Mauzac, morning

Used this sketch from my watercolour book and made an A4 copy in pencil, which I traced on the reverse of the paper. Then I painted the printing plate with a range of colours similar to the original painting and drew over the lines through the copy paper. The result is quite scribbled.

Made a ghost print, but on the wrong side of the paper, doh… Did another, so that the faint colours fitted the drawing.
