I did a pouring demonstration for a local womens club this evening of autumn leaves hanging on a tree. The size is 14"x18" and it is on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper. I had already done the preliminary drawing by using the grid method. I wet the painting with a sponge and then dropped in the paint using an eye dropper. After drying the painting, I started to do negative painting to make the positive leaves stand out. I will finish that part and then do the detailing to finish the painting. It was a nice evening and the refreshments were delicious.
