This painting was created based on a Life Book 2016 lesson given by Gillian Lee Smith. I love her paintings and really enjoyed learning her shading techniques and creating so much yummy texture using gesso. My husband said it looked like a storm was coming, so I decided to name it “Before the Storm”.
I had recently splurged and bought myself some Arches watercolor paper. It’s so expensive but I loved the way it took on all the wet media in this piece! It didn’t buckle or pill. Can’t wait to use it again!
