Drawing with Paper - Boats and Seascapes
 
Drawing with paper is a term, first used by the late Eric Kenneway, I believe, which describes the process of creating a pictorial design using the contrast between the two sides of irogami or differentiated paper (paper that is white on one surface and coloured on the other or a different colour on each surface).
