Washing out the bed sheet

I have been considering how to achieve the right amount of subtlety regards to the painting on the bed sheet. I am considering washing out the sheet I have already painted figurative trees on to see if it will leave any ghostly looks marks or if it will just wash out completely. The paint is a mixture watercolour and acrylic, so if not much is left visible after washing out, I will paint in a very subtle ‘dream’ landscape. It was suggested during a studio crit that ‘less is more’. Personally for this piece I agree as I don’t want it to look over whelming with the paint circles as well, as I think this will hinder on the overall feel of the piece. The idea is to represent only giving a sense of what is there as often dreams and memories are hazy.
