I did some experimenting this weekend with pouring. The Watercolor Workshop Yahoo group has this succulent for it's March project. I decided to try a different approach and after drawing it using a grid, I outlined it all with miskit. I decided to pour each leaf individually instead of the whole paper at once. I used acrylic inks which I mixed up ahead of time. I removed the miskit and am ready to define and detail the painting with traditional watercolor techniques. The painting is 15" x 20" and is on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
