The Finished Product

Brushes and Tape
by Artist Rita A. Squier

Original Watercolor Painting
Size:  11x15"

This is the finished product from Tuesday's Tips.  I meant to post it first thing Wednesday morning and other stuff just got in the way.

I loved the project so much, I used it as Wednesday's Watercolor Class project for the first night.  Kind of a really hard test for my students  (Sorry about that.)  But in a way, it really does give me an idea of where people are at watercolor painting wise.

It's not perfect, but it's great practice in painting without drawing first, value changes light to dark, painting a quick still life and painting negative space.

Very cool! For the life of me, I can't think of what it's called right now, but it reminds me of the paper that you can put in the sun with something on it and it makes a picture. Which was always a favorite as a kid. The color and the way you painted it makes it relaxing and interesting. Great job!

Thank you!

The paper I believe you're talking about is sun print paper or solar paper. Now I want some to play with. :)
