This is another project from Joe Garcia's book "Mastering the Watercolor Wash." I used it as a class demonstration last night to demo wet-in-wet painting by saturating the paper first with water. I also demonstrated how to create the rushes by incising the wet paper with lines created by using the handle end of a small paintbrush, allowing the pigment to fill in. I finished it tonight. This painting is 8" x 10" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
