My most recent watercolor, it's a small 5x7 inch. Feedback welcome, good or bad. BY the way I did a digital version which I'll post in the digital art section.

I don't know which version I like more it's so pretty did you scan this into the program then edit it or did you paint the digital version from scratch?

Like the nice loose watercolour Liz.

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

Thanks much

The original was a small acrylic, I used a transparent setting in my graphics program so I could trace around the acrylic, once I got it the way I wanted I deleted the acrylic from the digital file. The beauty of digital painting is that you can move things around as many times as you want without ruining anything. I liked the composition of the digital painting better than the acrylic and used it for my watercolor.

Thanks for that Liz. I'm exploring mediums that don't require a lot of room as I'm moving in to my RV pretty soon as soon as we close on the house. Digital and watercolor might be the thing. All I would need is a pad of paper right? The canvases will have to go.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

Watercolor paintings and supplies don't need a lot of space to store but you still need space to paint. I paint on a drafting table.

I have a collapsible, portable easel and I use my kitchen table or outside, works great!

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

Easels don't work that well with watercolor because the paint will run down the paper

I'm thinking of building something that will fit over my steering wheel. I'ts an unused space while we're parked and has a very comfy seat.
