Day 4: 30 paintings in 30 days

This is the painting for day 4...it is a transparent watercolor and is 8" x 5".  It is painted on 110 lb. printmaking paper.  The watercolor paintings on this paper tend to be tighter because the paper doesn't encourage good washes because the pigment soaks into the surface of the paper very quickly.  It is good, however for dry brush techniques, which I used on 2 of the leaves.
