Day 18

An English cottage
watercolor on 140lb. prepared paper

Happy to say that I am sticking with the 30 day challenge, it's a great
feeling.  This is a 5x7 watercolor on acrylic varnished 140lb.
paper, again, this process makes the surface erasable.
The white's in the paintings was just wiped out with a wet
brush.
I'm not used to working this tight, and like a more loose technique, which
I will attempt in oil.  This is a wip

Happy Painting Everyone.
