100% Watercolour on Arches 300gsm, full sheet.
I stretched the paper using a staple gun, a method i have been experimenting with. The stretching was essential for this painting due to the vast amount of water and layers of glazes – probably about 20 layers.

Beautiful. The effect of the glazing gives lovely depth and colour.
Wow, really beautiful! I was wondering, did you wash the paper before staple?
Yes, in fact I soaked it in the bath for a good 15 minutes to ensure it was completely soaked before stapling and then I began the underpainting while it was still very wet.Thanks for your great comment too.
I Love the tones- awesome work
Lovely work, love the colors
