There is an Arts and Crafts festival in Lambertville NJ that features hand painted posters announcing the event. At the end of the festival, the posters are auctioned off and the proceeds go towards art scholarships for local high school graduates.
This is my entry. The title is “Can I Go to the Shad Festival Too?”
It’s 8×10, watercolor on Arches 140# cold press paper. The most interesting part of doing this painting were the semi-transparent fins. I had to be careful to keep the plant seen through the fins very light.
I will mount the painting on the poster which is what many of the artists do. It’s then removeable and ready to frame.
This is the first time I have participated in this event so I’m quite excited about it.
