Stately Lady

This is the creation for today - a small watercolor - 5" x 7" and is painted on  140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.  It was a very pleasant way to spend a winter Saturday afternoon.

You are the official queen of reverse painting! Any tips?

This is really beautiful, with those details on the flower and leaves, I really admire your patience.

Thank you, Norena! Do I have any tips? I think it would be great to spend an afternoon painting together and I could show you all my "negative" tricks!

Thanks, Cora...some might call it obsession - not patience! :) I can't help it - it is just me. I would love to become a loose woman - I keep trying.

Gorgeous and fresh. Hard to keep up with your daily paintings, Barb, but I also go back and catch up when I've been absent :) Love to see what you're doing - and that pouring technique for the old truck is going to be great!

Rhonda...thanks for you encouraging comments. I think I am going to try to pour today.
