ACEO card. "Havin' Fun in the Sun!"
Singin', Dancin, Whoopin' it up Flowers! This is how I'd feel if I was in Florida right now!
This scan is kind of bland compared to the real painting of these happy flowers, they're very vibrant and filled with energy. This is a watercolor on gessoed mat board.
Working on this surface is the opposite of working on watercolor paper. I work from my darkest color here, to my lightest. On watercolor paper, I find the lightest colors first, then add layer after layer to create the darks. It's taken me awhile to get this way of working into my head. I create the light colors by wiping out the darks.
