Translation from “Eulalia” by J.M.Waterhouse
Watercolor, 300lb. paper, 23 by 30 inches
For a workshop I learned so much in!
dramatic character improvement, after death!
Saint Eulalia of Merida was tortured for her beliefs and, according to Roman chronicles, she was burned at the stake. At the time of her death, a white dove flew out of her mouth. She was in her early teens, as young as 12 and as “old” as 14.
Working on 300 lb. paper was a new experience for me, and a GREAT one! The colors dried faster and didn’t spread as easily, but nothing bubbled or curled and the fast drying allowed for a quicker finish!
