Feeding Time Yet?

20 Sep

This painting was an experiment with some of the new tools available for watercolors. I admit I am a watercolor purist – and so this was also an exercise in bravery. I purchased a number of clayboard panels while visiting my daughter in Vancouver last year.
It has taken me exactly a year to decide to experiment with them.
The texture of the clayboard is quite different from paper – at first I was unsure if I liked it or not. After painting for a few minute – i started to get the feel for the material – bottom line. If you have time to play, this is a fun product. I sealed the finished painting with three coats of Krylon spray varnish. I have not decided yet if I am going to apply Golden Polymer Varnish over top or not. I know it will owrk well as I used it on teh Eastern Tiger Swallowtail in my last blog.
These goldfish and Koi are family pets – they summer in our pond and winter in a large aquarium in our basement.
