(Kinda like painting on masa.)
Patio ala Masa – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor on Masa Paper
I loved this reference by JustJean at WetCanvas. I painted it on masa that had a thin coat of Mod Podge on the surface. The paintings I posted last week didn’t have any medium on the surface and this was much easier. The paper is less fragile and you can blot off color, where the uncoated masa is too fragile and the paint is permanent once it hits the paper. I would have used acrylic matte medium, but I didn’t have any. For some reason, I seem to have plenty of Mod Podge.
This was pure pleasure to paint. I especially love how the fence looks. Check out Leslie White’s fence here. Leslie’s painting is what inspired me.
