The largest watercolor I've tried....


Oh, boy!  A big painting - whole sheet of Arches 150 cold press.  I don't think I've ever done a full-sheet before.  It barely fits on my work table, and then, on the largest board on my easel!

I'm taking a little break from pastel to see if I can pull this off.  It is to go in a frame we already had a nice, but dated, poster in.  We looked at that poster enough years.  And it will go over the fireplace.

Hi all. Ida, I just started it on the table, with the shadows in pale blue, and the pale orange wash. When dry I put it on the easel and now am painting it upright, just doing layers of glazes, darkening as I go. I'm using transparent, non-staining wc so I can lift-out light areas where I want.
