Those of you who follow this blog know that I am reworking 23 mediocre paintings. I just finished #22 and will post it soon. Now, on to #21. I'll start with a 4.5 x 6 inch color study. In my flat file, I found a sheet of Wallis paper with a splashy watercolor foundation. The Wallis is mounted onto 4-ply archival mat. I penciled in the boundaries for the little study and indicated the composition. Starting a new painting is always an exciting, hopeful time!
