Watermedia Reworked Art "Gone with the Wing"


15x22 mixed watermedia:  acrylic, ink, collage over failed red rose watercolor.  This work was a demo for the Amarillo Art Institute a few years ago.  In its former life it was a vertical red rose that I can post here if anyone wants to see it.  Classes using the techniques I have developed are in demand and I'm scheduling out of town demos about once a month along with workshops on mixed watermedia as well as transparent watercolor.  Moral of the story is never throw out your old dogs!

Thanks Helen, Christiane, and Kurlie. I won't run out of old dogs; I have a bin full.
