"Trees need not walk the earth for beauty or bread; Beauty will come to them where they        stand…Beauty will come to them in the rainbow - the sunlight - and the lilac-haunted rain."                     (David Rosenthal)

Small (8"x8") project demonstrations using Gouache, Watercolor, and Windsor Newton Soft Pastels (Yellow Ochre, Raw Sienna, and Brown Ochre).  The 300# watercolor paper I used was gesso'd with several coats to give me a very heavy thick surface to work on.  After these paintings was finished, they were sprayed with fixative to hold it all in place and then later varnished in a satin finish.  (Posted earlier on this blog in November)
