Princess Park, watercolor on paper mounted on board by 

From a picture I took in Princess Park ( North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), it is a watercolor with a bit of gouache.
Recently I started experimenting with mounting different kinds of papers on board. I think watercolor and gouache are amazing media but I am sometimes frustrated by the need to frame works.

- Building complex textures and edges with acrylics and mixed media on canvas (

    Nicely done Sandrine, very beautiful piece. I like to use both watercolour and gouache as well, they make excellent partners.

  • Hello Jim, yes me too, I like the nice contrast of transparency and opaque you get that way.

    Beautiful painting! I like you you captured the light. Thanks for sharing your process. Do you seal the painting with anything is you are not framing it?

  • Thanks Lora :-), What I did is I use fixative (Krylon workable fixative) before because I wanted to make sure that no paint would be lift off, and then I brushed varnish on. I guess you could also spray varnish .
