when i paint i usually have a canvas or paper nearby so that i don't waste paint, the excess gets brushed onto something for later use.
6........roughly draw the subject, i used black crayon, then with a white crayon rub over the negative spaces ....the crayon stays on the ridges leaving the paint visible in the valleys created by the fork......the green right wing with some of the original colour showing.....
this could be a fun project for kids (of all ages) to try.
i would love to see your creations if you try this.
