I experimented with a different approach to a watercolor in this floral painting. The canvas I used has a special sizing that accept watercolors and the finished painting is sealed with a clear acrylic protectant which is archival. The surface of the canvas accepts the paint differently than paper. I think I like the way it stays more on the surface of the painting and it's also much easier to "lift" the paint back to a lighter shade or even back to white. I really appreciate the fluidity of watercolors, and in this painting, I had a great time shaping the tulips and leaves with a feeling of energy and movement.
