I have had some watercolor canvas sitting around my studio for a while now and decided it was time to give it a try. The canvas provides a textured surface where the watercolor can be easily lifted and creates a fun, painterly effect. When I felt like I was finished - never an easy thing to decide - I mounted the canvas to an 1/8 inch panel to provide stability and make it easy to slip into a frame.
I love to combine watercolor with other art mediums and oil pastels are perfect for adding light colors in a painting. I used pink and white oil pastel for the flowers because the will resist the paint, keeping the color light and bright.
