An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
My dad again... Make do with what you've got. How often do I do that? Here is my most recent example.
I am out doing my weekly watercolor while Suzie is inside the supermarket shopping, when I realize I left all of my paper at home. So rather than be board for the hours or so, I looked around for some alternative. I have used the backs of our gallery showcards that I usually have a short stack of in the truck, for drawing cars in the lot. These I have already posted. But I had not tried doing a watercolor on them yet. The backs are uncoated, so it worked pretty well. The size is tiny on these, only 3"x4" in the space where you address the card, but makes a great little area to work and force yourself to be bold.
Here are some of the results.
