6 by 9….  watercolor on paper $50.00  

This background is white… it looks a bit pink because of some reflective light.

I’m trying to finish several other projects right now…  one is my larger Koi painting….a watercolor on paper which is highlighted on my painting a week blog.  I think I’ll be finished with it tomorrow.   Then there is my big 44 by 44 oil painting, several small watercolors and another 6 foot by 8 foot watercolor which I want to get out before Christmas.

Whew… Am I busy!

This is a 6″ by 6″ watercolor on gessoed wood panel. $40.00 plus 5.5 for shipping.
to paint watercolors on wood:
First you paint about three coasts of gesso onto the wood, allow it dry then you paint it with acrylic oils or watercolor. If you use watercolor you cannot use too much water as there isn’t as much absorbancey in the gesso as there is in paper. Finally you varnish it with watercolor fixative or acrylic varnish. It can be hung without glass.
This palette is one I was experimenting with, its a split complimentary more or less.
