On Winsor and Newton 90lb hot press, about 8″ x 10″. Paints used? Oh, goodness.
I decided to paint a series of shorebirds on some of those lovely Garza Papel sample sheets. For extra fun/practice I am doing them without sketching first, just put up a ref and dive in. The Great Blue (heron) turned out nice, so I decided to do an American Avocet next. It was an adventure! I thought others might benefit from seeing a rescue operation in progress.
The short version: Better to plan ahead than try to fix things!
So, been enjoying a wonderful afternoon of painting. Took on a WetCanvas.com Watercolor Monthly Challenge, so I was painting that right in front of the computer while simultaneously working on something on the drafting table, from last month’s challenge in the WetCanvas.com Southwest forum. Great fun, and always nice to have another painting to pick up while the first one is drying.
