Over the Sea 21


This is one of two demonstration paintings I was able to get a good start on in the class I taught yesterday. It`s painted on Strathmore Aquarius paper which is a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers. To say it`s 'forgiving' is an understatement. It never buckled, color lifted easily, blending was effortless and the texture was subtle. I used bristle brushes almost exclusively and explained there was very little difference between my watercolor methods and my oil. I paint flat, work thin and transparency is important in both.
