10″ x 14″ Watercolor and Sharpie on 240# Cold Press
Did you see all the little elves? It’s a vacation getaway for the North Pole crew. Mr. & Mrs. Clause have lost some weight over the summer, too.
This was fun. I drew the whole thing with a Sharpie, before I painted in the watercolors. When I did “Montreal in Color”, I painted all the lines in with black acrylic. I got much smoother lines with the acrylic, than I did with the Sharpie. It takes a little longer, but the quality is better. If I wanted even better lines, I guess I’d have to change the paper to a hot press. As much as I experiment with mediums, I really don’t play around much with different papers. Perhaps it’s time?
