This is a drawing I did from a vase of Tulips I saw that was very pretty. I drew it on an envelope when I saw it and decided to try to paint it. This paper is Rives BFK which is one of my favorite papers for watercolor. It is extremely soft...so soft that when I tried to mask some of the flowers off with painters tape so I could add the background embellishments it pulled just a bit of the paint back off. At first I was a bit miffed but then I thought...hummm. distress-ness! So I guess it was a happy mistake. Maybe I will try that happy mistake again. I am sure it has to be done on this type of soft paper though.
Oh, and guess who's here with me? Baby Marc and his mama, Macaulay! I probably won't be able to post any art but maybe some pictures. I will post about my workshop in Orlando after they leave on Friday.
And here is one of the best things about being a grandmother. He runs to me even when he hasn't see me in a month. I am smitten.
