Wolf Skull On Published Newsprint.

Wolf Skull (Watercolor and ball-point pen on newsprint, 10x12 [paper], 7x6 [image]).

I did another watercolor in the pages of San Diego's CityBeat.  The newsprint holds up surprisingly well.  The only problem is that once the paper gets wet it instantly turns dark, so I have to wait for it to dry to determine the actual color value I laid down.  Although it's quick absorption assists with the wet-into-wet painting technique.  It gives me a chance to blend and soften edges.
