Sunflower on Canvas???

watercolor 12 x 12 on watercolor canvas

Thought I would try something new....yes, painting on canvas. This is special canvas made for watercolor. It was a lot of fun and I didn't know what was going to happen. Up close it looks like a batik. I am thinking of teaching this at a workshop this summer. I think it would be a lot of fun.

Was this the Fredrix watercolor canvas. I've been wanting to try it, but it means a trip over the border, as it's not available anywhere near Vancouver, BC. What is it like as a surface to work on?

Yes, it is the Fredrix canvas. It was a trip to work on. But a good trip. lol. Very exciting and a bit unpredictable. It reminds me of a batik. You can lift the paint off totally. This can be to your advantage and then it can be a problem. I hope you can get some soon. I am going to teach a class on it but I live in Indiana near Chicago. I am now waiting for the spray fixative to come in.

Can you order from any of the catalogs?
