I applied all the paint directly onto the surface of the paper & then streaked it around with a very mildly moistened sponge.  First layer was background color.  The central section of the piece is at least 3 layers and lots of additions to the top coat before feeling as though this painting was done.

    I love the streaking effect. I have to remember to get my sponges out.. I never think of them when using watercolors!
