We painted in a quiet corner - :o I forgot the drying time involved with 300 lb paper therefore did 3 in varying sizes while I waited for the largest to dry ... :rolleyes: We painted til lunch then went shopping! :D
I was going for loose and expressive in both colour and handling. These are listed in order of size and the order in which I painted them. Do I need more work? Critiques please. :)
1. 1/4 sheet 300 lb Arches rough, WN & M.Graham paints

2. 7 x 9 1/4 on 140 lb rough, same paints - also mixed in some watercolour markers

3. 4 x 6 140 rough, watercolour markers

Hi Sue!!! Welcome back... and didn't you just have a blast????

Firstly, don't touch any of these... you painted these abroad, and any changes would *take away* from that experience...

I love the brilliant colour in all three...

Please post these in the Gallery as finished works... they deserve LOTS of attention!!!
