Watercolor, Postcard Size

Watercolor Postcard
6" x 4" Card
5" x 3" Image size

Not much time to paint yesterday so played around with post card size paper. It was fun just placing colors. The area around the foreground trees is a bit muddy because I lifted/blotted out a figure I had placed there. The good news is, no beading or rolling of the paper. Good paper, quality paints are essential.

Wow Ann Buckner, this is awesome!!!! Seriously, this is what I'd expect to see when looking through a book on how to paint loose watercolours. It really is beautiful!!! Love your colour choices, love the lights in the tree, love the looseness, everything! Beautiful! Is this one of the new papers you received?

Thanks Deb! The paper is Fabriano Aristico 140# cold press which I think is a bit smoother than Arches. It is one of my favorite papers.
