Painting: Half

full image:



Watercolours & Pencil & Acrylics on Paper
Approx 10.5″ x 14″ (about 26.6 cm x 35.5 cm)

The paper curls a bit, but I’ll flatten it by lightly misting the back of the paper with water, then sandwich it between two sheets of wax paper, then cover it with a large piece of corrugated cardboard, and press it overnight with a weight on top (I use a big pail of Gesso as a weight). It turns out perfectly flat and ready for framing.

Some close-ups:
