Watercolor on Watercolor canvas workshop

watercolor
12" x 12"

Today I had a workshop in the studio on how to paint on watercolor canvas. We were painting pumpkins so that they would have something to decorate their homes with this Thanksgiving. It was a challenge to paint on the canvas, but they loved it. We also found out that the student grade paints just don't match up to the professional brand of paints. I personally use Holbein paints and I just love them!! The colors are so intense and you do not get all of that filler that you do in some of the other brands. You get what you pay for. Use the best supplies to get the best results!!
