Poured Rose Succulent

I finally finished the succulent that I started before the demonstration at Lima Area Watercolor Society.  It was part of the pouring demonstration.  The painting was poured, but poured in areas that I had divided with miskit.  I used acrylic inks for the initial pours and then removed the miskit and finished with transparent watercolor.  The painting is 15" x 19" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.  This was also painted for the March project of Watercolor Workshop.

The quality of light you've achieved on this is quite superb, Barb - even the texture looks spot on. Very hard to do in WC - congrats. x
