This month I got out my watercolours and beautiful watercolour paper and painted little landscapes and water scenes.
I love it when the dry painting still looks wet. This can only happen by painting watercolours into damp cotton paper.
I created these scenes for the Bear River Holiday Spirit Craft Show and Sale on Sat, November 30, (from 10 – 4.) They are perfect for framing and are a standard size. The images are 5.5″ x 7’5″. They can be used as cards.
I’ve priced them at $20 each. I wanted everyone to have a chance to own or to gift an original painting. I know that some of you live too far away to come to Bear River for this show, but if you would like me to set any aside for you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the painting # please.
I will be set up in the Bear River Artworks Gallery which is at the front of the Oakdene Centre building. Drop by and say hi if you come.
All the details of the day are listed at the bottom of this post.
I made a short video so you can see my painting process and how wet the paper had to be.
