11x14 watercolor. Canoe on beach.

On a whim I did this painting on smooth (plate) bristol. I painted watercolors on bristol many years ago and forgot how fun it is. It's an extremely fast process as the paint dries almost immediately and stays put - No blending or softening edges later - It's a little bit like using markers, so all your decisions are intuitive and you leave a lot to chance. I think I'll try some more of these.
