Just Chill_in

This is a 15"x11" watercolor on 300lb hp paper. This is a Catherine Anderson technique.  Love her work. Website _ Here   I used multiple glazes in gradient style. Each glaze has to be bone dry before adding the next one. I masked out the herons and foliage to add a variation of texture and color depth, before the glazing process. And, it is a process.  You want to retain that glow of light and keep it as pristine as possible.  But things happen, I have two cats and the Beastie 1(aka Calvin) just had to leave his signature (paw print) on the glow area.  Oh well;-)
