Native American Pottery
This was an unusual painting for me to do. I combined three photos to make this watercolor on 300# paper. Because I wanted an unusual texture on the big pot, I painted it in a series of some 30 washes and used sandpaper inbetween the dried washes. I was pleased with the results, but later thought I should have applied the same technique to the small pot and the blanket. This painting (22x30) is now in a private collection, but I am just starting a similar watercolor using 400# paper. Will keep you posted on my results.
