I’m experimenting in a relatively new media for me. I do use some charcoal during the process, so when the work is dry, I spray the painting with both a Fixative and UV protective spray. The work is then mounted onto 1.5″ deep wood cradles with the sides painted black. When thoroughly dry, an archival coat of acrylic varnish follows. Unlike traditional watercolor works, this presentation does not require framing under glass. The wood cradle is wired on the back and ready to hang.
This painting is on 140# WC Paper- 12″ x 9″Moment in the Sun – Thinking but not too deeply, confident but not enough. Knows she has time to get to where she is headed!
