This old milk canister had been sitting around our house for years. We had no idea what we wanted to do with it so I thought I would add it to my collection of watercolor paintings. For some reason, I had the absolute worst time trying to get the blues in this piece to scan correctly. I have always had trouble scanning the Lapis Lazuli but this one was a particular nightmare. The piece is painted with a combination of Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paint and Daniel Smith Primatek paints on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. The paper and paint combinations really create some interesting textural effects. The original piece is 10.25″×14″ in size.
