I have been trying new things. The watercolor above
was started with a sketch, then traced using acrylic white gesso
that I had put into my gutta bottle with a tiny fine tip. I let it dry
and then proceeded with the watercolor, painting the
background first. I did this on 140lb watercolor paper in my
Sketchbookery hand made journal. I think I would do this process
again only using a larger format.
I do like how this turned out even though it felt strange painting
watercolor on canvas. I used Daniel Smith watercolor grounds on
the canvas letting it dry for 24 hours. It really has a different feel to it
when painting. Very different from wc paper. Will try this again.
I was looking at different blogs I like. This one gal is a oil painter.
She paints with a palette knife. So out came my acrylics and I
gave it a try. There is a lot of paint on this canvas. LOL
(sorry about the shine)
It was fun. I shall keep practicing with the palette knife,
it takes some getting used to.
So that's what I've been up to.
How about you???
