"Flower Pot Man"
16x20 watercolor on archival watercolor canvas, framed
I painted this plein air in Heathcote Botanical Gardens, my first watercolor on archival watercolor canvas and I loved the difference between it and watercolor paper. It has the same texture almost as any canvas, but the watercolor paint doesn't just "sit there"; it does seem to absorb the color, but not as much as paper, so I got a very light and airy look, which for this subject was perfect! A very fun alternative to watercolor paper. I was really pleased with the soft colors.
