Calla Lillies and Cyclamen Still Life
The calla lillies my brother brought me the other week had me reaching for the watercolour paints again.
Not having a heavier weight paper to hand
I used what I had,
which was a smooth finished lighter weight more
appropriate for line and light washes.
Consequently I had to take care not to overwork the surface
and could neither build washes nor lift paint
as I would have liked.
Still it's interesting to see how the different paper affects the outcome.
