Day 13

watercolor study on varnished
prepared 140 hot press paper

I would rather do studies in this 30 day challenge.  If per chance a study
turns out to be a fairly good painting then I would frame
and show.

Don't want this challenge to be anything more than a way to learn various
approaches and techniques in my work.

This particular study was done on prepared 140lb. hot press paper.  Using
acrylic gloss varnish to coat the paper making it a surface that
can be wiped away to the white of the paper.  Of course I have learned
this from David Dunlop in his video.  Landscape Through Time second

I realize that in time it will be necessary to actually do and complete
finished paintings on a larger surface. but that is for another day.

Happy Painting Everyone.


  1. You're doing so beautifully in this challenge, Joan! This is a wonderful scene and you captured it so well in a small canvas!
