Today while I was working on a practice painting for the Fresh Florals class, I decided to test a new paper, Crane’s Lettra, 110C in Pearl White. I was not sure how much water it could take so I was careful not to saturate the surface. This paper is 100% cotton and it took the water I did use beautifully so in my next test I will not hold back on the water.

More fun with Roses!

For this rosy practice session, I used a bigger brush and added some layers of color – either a deeper tone of the same color or something completely different.

Back in the studio today and warming up with some roses! Looking forward to trying some variation with line, layer and color. There is something wonderful about bright colors on a crisp, fresh piece of paper.

Before doing the final painting, I wanted to see if I could increase the vibrancy of the colors with more pigment, less water and a bigger brush.
