Transparent Watercolors?
Painting with very
diluted transparent watercolor pigments that are thinly layered until desired color and value are achieved.  This technique allows light to pass through to the paper, reflecting back to the viewer, for a luminous effect.  All whites are carefully  preserved as there is no use of white paint.  Pencil is used only for planning marks with paintings executed on a single piece of untreated watercolor paper.
