SORBET - Colorful Treasury

WILD IRIS
Watercolor w/ Stamping - 15x22

Wild Iris was featured in a colorful Etsy Treasury titled Sorbet. I began this painting by applying several stamps coated with white gesso to the wateroclor paper. When I began applying the watercolors the gesso resisted the paint, allowing the white shapes to show thru and add an unexpected dimension to the painting.

With the hot weather we have been having lately a little cold sorbet sounds good - to see more of this pretty collection click here
