    These just keep getting better & better…aren’t all those reflections driving you batty yet? Or are you at the point of no return? ha!

  • Oh, I was batty before I began. This one is on watercolor canvas, which really did threaten to send me round the bend. Push to hard or lean a wrist on the canvas and the water and paint run. :O

    Wow…watercolour on canvas? I didn’t know you could do that. Is the paint difficult to control and push around? Great painting…reflections and complimentary colours really make it stand out!

  • You can paint watercolor on canvas one of two ways. If you gesso the canvass first, you can paint with watercolor and then, if you want to frame without glass treat it with a clear acrylic finish after a stop spray. That is a little like working on Yupo. "Fredrix" makes a gessoed canvass especially for watercolor which is a little more like paper to work with but it still feel more like yupo then paper to me. Fredrix is what I used in this case.

    Thanks for all the info Jenny, I usually get all my paints through dick blick, but anything too large gets expensive to ship to Australia….but I will keep a look out at the art shop to see if I can find something to try out on…unfortunately we don’t get the range of art products here that are available in the States.
