Watercolor in the Village

Bosc Pears and Baked Beans
This painting began as an experiment after seeing a painting by Myrna Wacknov in an article about her in Watercolor Magazine. She described a process where she painted on a surface which was gesso stamped with lace. I prepared my painting surface by stamping the wet gesso with pieces of an old curtain given to me by a friend, Rosie Wermert. It was so much fun painting on the gesso, and I was pleased with the results.
