Version #2 Trish’s Cutting Garden

Making Progress with Watercolors
This is my first session on my 2nd painting of Trish’s Cutting Garden.  The previous painting I stuck with a little too long.  There is a lot of detail but it is a little overworked.  This time I am trying for a looser approach.  The progressive photos will help.  The format is different 10″h x 8″w.  This time no pencil marks.  I am using the Ampersand clay board designed for watercolor. The surface really grabs the color.  There  will be no pushing, or removing color from this surface.

The nice thing about this surface-you can move the paint around without scrubbing.  You do need to spray it with a fixative once
