    I am a new member. I started back painting when I retired in 2011. Many years ago I painted in oils, but the smells really gave my sinus a fit. I finally gave that and many years later I started playing around with photo manipulation and digital art. Over time that just made me miss the feel of the brush in my hand. I took up watercolor and have lately been experimenting with acrylics using the new open acrylics made by Golden. I found that the added drying time lessened the frustration of acrylics a great deal. (I am not a fast painter by any stretch of the imagination) I came across this discussion board quite by accident but decided to join. I saw some really great painters and was very intrigued by some of the conversations. I am making a post of one of my watercolor paintings. The painting is a gallery wrap with the paper wet and stretched over canvas stretcher bars and then varnished. The work is 20"x 20". I welcome any comments.

Sorry, but this place is dead but I will comment on your painting... WOW!!! Fantastic work of art.

I, too, am retired and painting with watercolors but I'm not as good as you are. :-)
