Forelle Pears – Watercolour on Canvas

follow url The 3 Forelle pear paintings (8’x10”) are my first attempt at applying watercolour on canvas.

After viewing other artist videos, I began using more intense colour with less water for better success.

A light spray of Krylon Workable Fixatif allowed me to add more watercolour layers … stippling, shadows, etc.  The trick was to use light brush strokes and not work the watercolour too much as the layers begin to lift.

This may not be the correct technique … but overall pleased with the results.  Will definitely try again!
