And here I've got interested in one more unconventional painting technique — landscape monotyping and want to show it to you.

Easy painting and drawings for kids.

You need:
paper, brushes, gouache or water-color paint, wet sponge, a glazed tile.

In this case the picture is painted on the tile and then it's covered with a piece of paper. The image appears diffuse.

You can have such a picture:
