Crystal Bowl with Apples
Golden Paints have developed a line of watercolor paints which they call Qor (Core.) They have contacted watercolor artists and asked them to experiment and paint with these new watercolors. I was one of the lucky ones who gets to try them out.
This painting was painted only with their new paints...I finished it today. For your information, I like the paints very much. This painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Strathmore Windpower cold-pressed watercolor paper.
A friend, fellow artist and photographer, Deb Holmes, sent me this photo of apples which she photographed. I thought it was beautiful. Thank you so much, Deb!
As far as Golden Paints is concerned, they will get a thumbs up from me for their new watercolor line. I plan to continue experimenting with the new paints and see how they work with other papers and mixed media. A big "Thank You" to them for the honor of being able to work with the paints. I think I was in Heaven when I received them in the mail!!!
