"Rooke Chapel #1
Original watercolor on Fluid 100, Cold Press, 8"x8"
I just got this block of paper yesterday. It seems pretty good. Does not lift as easily as Arches paper, but I like the size of the block.
I got a commission to paint Rooke Chapel on the Bucknell campus. I took a load of photos, but there is snow on the ground and the client would prefer a spring/summer look. This is the first of several smaller paintings to work out the composition and the color bugs. I am imagining the trees leafed out. I did a few tests in my sketchbook but this is the first on "real" paper. I plan to do another small painting for tomorrow.
