Artist's Description

This is one in a series of kitchen paintings I did years ago, ‘82, to be exact! It’s time to put it out there. The dimensions of the original are 13 1/8"x 12 1/8".

I stretch my watercolor paper (if you do watercolors I beg you to try this! email for a discussion on it) so it acts like heavier weight paper for the price of lighter, like this one may actually have been a 90lb. and feels and look like a 150lb. Great savings for a starving artist without giving up quality.

The fern was done with a masking tape resist so the background could be painted first. Then the tape was removed and the fern was painted. This adds a step, but I found if the shape you want to do is organic it’s better to do it this way than the paint-on masks. I used rubber cement once and years later it yellowed the paper! arrgh!
