All Lined Up on Gesso Paper

Watercolor on gesso - 11x15

All Lined Up was painted on paper coated with white gesso. I love to paint on this slick surface because the watercolors react in a totally unpredictable way, slipping and sliding all over to create fun blossoms and texture. I also had fun adding unexpected shades of pink, yellow and turquoise thru out the painting!

  1. Hi Martha, just spotted you on DailyPaintworks and thought I'd take a look at your blog. This painting on the gessoed paper intrigues me. I haven't tried that, but will! Yours is very pretty. Just joined your blog...take a peek at mine, too, if you will. Egretta
