Webbie backgrounds

These pieces are  half sheet size papers created at a class.  We used the polyester fiber that is sold at Halloween time to stretch and becomes spider web like for decorating. We pulled it in various ways and pinned it to wet paper and added colors here and there and let it dry. Aren’t they cool??  They can be used as a background, or negative painted on (darkening certain areas to create another design), cutting or tearing for collage. The possibilities are vast and exciting to think about, including using the technique in a conscious way to create a design before putting down paint.  

What do you see in the paintings?  I see angel wings in the pink. I love the colors of the blue
