She walks with Feather


She walks with Feather
~

this page had gesso on it
(a very smooth Italian Gesso)
then i chose watercolor
a slippery  mix
the watercolor always sits on top of the gessoed surface,
can be moved around over and over 
with a wet brush

Carmen has inspired me to show you all a photo 
of the lake i was sitting at when i sketched the art I shared yesterday:
Lake Bowman, Glacier National Park, Montana

    You have beautiful place to paint :-)

  5. Love her eyes. I have never tried watercolor on gesso so it's good to know that if I do that it sits on top of the gesso.
