I have been without telephone, television and internet for the last 24 hours due to the blizzard that hit, leaving a calling card of about 45cm of snow. Not fun.
But the lack of distractions increased productivity in terms of painting and the business and marketing side of art. I rearranged files, catalogued images, tranferred documents and images to my external hard drive and created new ones. I may never find anything ever again...
I continued work on the batik-like watercolour that I started the other night and am calling it complete now. I have to say that I quite enjoyed painting this and love the colour contrasts. I'm planning more when using this paper and have another piece started that I will use as a step by step piece for anyone who wants to try this technique.
This is done on a half sheet of masa paper which is glued to another half sheet of 140lb Bockingford watercolour paper. Buckling wasn't too much of an issue, nothing that flattening it under a box of paper won't cure.
