|Hello, Buttercup! 11×4 Watercolor on paper|
This watercolor is the 4th in a series of warm ups on long strips of leftover watercolor paper (Fabriano Artistico 300lb), and I’m thinking about framing the four of them together in a line up. There’s a soft arc from right to left, like an ocean swell of quirky little girl faces. What do you think? Mat & Frame separately, or all together in a quad inside one larger frame?
There is nothing so discouraging as a bad composition at the very start. Do most of your “changing” in composition before you begin to paint, for at the beginning, when you are fresh, it is easy to change a composition. It is just “blocked in” and there it nothing to “spoil” yet. ~John E. Carlson
