8 inch by 5 1/2 inch on 140 lb. cp/Fabriano watercolor paper using 99% watercolor and a teeny bit of pencil in a few places. I'm trying to just "do it" and paint things I've not done before. I left the bowl white as I kind of liked it that way and in the actual painting you can see a better contrast then this picture. I'd use a daker brownish/redish matt with this and leave aprox. 1/2 to 1 inch of the sides showing as I think it looks kind of funky with the casual edges.
