Pears and Lace

This is the painting that I have prepared to teach this Monday evening at Riverside Art Center. 

 It is a transparent watercolor which is painted on 140 lb. hot-pressed Canson's watercolor paper.  I made a mistake and used the hot-pressed side instead of the cold-pressed side and lived to regret it.  This was so hard to paint on hot-pressed paper.  I must be sure that my students use the cold.  

The crocheted doily was difficult to paint because it didn't all come together until after it was almost all painted and I added the details and the dark bottom.  This is a challenge, but I know my students will handle it well.
