Autumn Fruits

PaintingsPosted by Debbie Craddock 29 Aug, 2016 21:08
As Autumn approaches I am posting a painting on vellum from last autumn of crab apples. The vellum makes the watercolours look more luminous than on paper. It is necessary to build up the layers of paint gradually to create the density of colour so it is a slow process. Vellum is becoming more popular among botanical artists because of the fine detail that can be achieved on this surface.
