I am slowly figuring out this blogging thing! I wanted to post this painting, out of sequence, as it didn’t post with the other 2009 work. It was the painting I learned the most from last year.
I was trying out Bockingford watercolor paper. It is tinted and one of my favorite watercolor artists, Edward Wesson, used it. Well, I hated it. My colors dried MUCH lighter than normal, it didn’t take a lot of working and tried to fall apart when I removed the tape from the edges. This painting would have been vibrant and exciting had I used my usual paper.
