Tea and Pears
8x6in watercolor on aquabord $125.
Protective coating added
I have a new teapot. I am still having fun
trying to figure out its different viewpoints.
After FOUR WIPERS trying to paint
a landscape of Georgia O'Keeffe's house
on Ghost Ranch...I took a deep breath, decided
not to ram the palette knife through my heart
and changed my media.
I know...you have all been through it and
surely do understand and sympathize.
This is the second painting done with
watercolor on the Ampersand Aquabord.
I am exploring the different ways to use
the fracturing technique on this surface.
The Aquabord intrigues me as you do not
have to put the watercolor under glass
as long as it has a protective coating.
The surface is different. It has a fine pebbly
tooth. I like the way you can place
flowing wash or dry brush using the texture
of the surface.
