This is a 6 x 12 stretched canvas and I decided to try something different. I have Absorbent Grounds made by Golden that I have hardly ever used. I just love watercolor paper so much that I have never really used it that much. So I decided to layer a coat of absorbent grounds on this canvas and see what happened. It was really fun to paint these poppies on this surface. I liked it alot although it is different from watercolor paper but it really does allow you to paint with watercolor on it.
You can see below how I started it off with just a wash in the background then painted the poppies. You can learn to paint these poppies in my upcoming "Painting Poppies" class that starts
August 15th. I will do a giveaway on the 13th.
