It has been some time since I have posted on my blog, but I have been painting all along. I'll try to get some of my more recent paintings posted and do a little "catch-up".
This is an experiment using Daniel Smith watercolor ground to prepare the surface of a standard canvas to paint on with watercolor. The surface is not quite the same as watercolor paper, but does present an interesting surface to paint on. I've been doing some Chinese brush painting and so I tired out some bamboo in that manner.


  1. Oooh, beautiful! It would be interesting to see the texture up close. Looking forward to seeing you on Monday!!!

  2. Hi, Julia,
    OOOOO! I'm so behind getting things up on the blog! At first when I tried the watercolor ground, I was a little disappointed. But, stopped trying to make it be watercolor paper and now see how to use it on its own terms. It gives a nice soft look to the paint.
    See you Monday!
