PASSION ROSES on Gessoed paper

PASSION ROSES
Watercolor  on gesso paper - 8x10
 
These pretty pink roses were painted on 140lb watercolor paper that was first coated with white gesso. The watercolor paint sits on the surface of the paper instead of soaking in, allowing for fast and loose painting with fun drips and blossoms.
 
"I once read a commentary on the painter Degas that said, 'He had a great talent for discovering beauty'. Not creating beauty, or reproducing it, but discovering it. That was the first time I realized that an artist's real contribution isn't what he paints, but the way he sees."  ~Martha Beck
