watercolor 11 x 15
At the Illinois Watercolor Society's members show about a month ago, I won a merchandise award. Part of it was this wc block. This is one I never tried before so I thought I would see what I can do on it. I loved the techniques I was seeing the oil painters using and I wondered if I could catch that look in watercolor. I felt that wc did not have to always be transparent, loose and light in value. I wanted to try to get texture into my painting. I did not use opaque paint. I just used less water. Enjoy!
