Watercolor Paintings on Watercolor Canvas

These are my first watercolor paintings done on watercolor canvas. The gesso is created especially for watercolor. It is very easy to pull up paint from this type of canvas. The downside is that if the wrong area gets wet, the painting is vulnerable. To protect the painting spray-fix is used.

“Afire” and “Abloom” were created in the spring of 2004. The rest I made in the summer of 2005. “Afire” and “Aflow” are my two favorites of the six. Anyway, I exhibited all six paintings in a show at the Baton Rouge Archives building. The show was called “Abstrectly speaking.

Although not completely made of dots, I still enjoyed painting these pieces
