Fruit Plate

22x15 watercolor on hot press 140 lb paper that I first coated with white gouache, then painted.  This gives a nice softness to the colors in the fruit still life of pears, strawberries and blueberry muffins on antique china plates.  Before the pear paint dried, I color-sanded colored pencil into it using fine grit sandpaper.

I love the soft colors of this. I noticed that you said that you sanded colored pencils in this? Did I understand that correctly? I never thought of that. Oh, and I loved, loved the fish from maybe today (June 28, 2016).
