I don’t know why I have always wanted to paint a case latch but I finally found a suitable candidate. This one is from a very old trumpet case so it immediately appealed to me. I painted this with Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paint on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. The texture of the paper and these unique paints create some amazing textures in the piece. The original is 14″×10.25″ in size.
