I'm trying to loosen up with my watercolors – These roses are my effort to actually have lost edges in my painting. The source was a photo from my back yard in Albuquerque. I painted on 140 lb Arches hot press, soaked and stretched over a sheet of gator board. Texture was achieved using plastic bags pressed against the wet pigment. Matted and framed the painting will measure 28 x 22 inches.
