'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke||
Well, I warned you it's gonna be a slow process! :-) Today I did first wash of light yellow over entire Iris painting - waiting for it to dry. Then I did what I should have been doing all along on the other two - soaked them in the bathtub for 5 minutes, laid them on boards and stapled them down to stretch and dry completely. All in a day's work! So I took my extra time and drove to South Boston, VA to take photos of downtown storefronts to paint for the show at the Prizery. They will be kind of a pen and ink sketch with watercolor. I did them before of downtown Charles Town, WV when I was in a gallery/coop there and they were well received! They are fun to do! Was a beautiful sunny day, and I stumbled into a new women's boutique and a tunic top jumped into my arms and made me take her home!
