Tuscan Tribute #128

"Ellie's Pots - Part I" - These pots are done on Unyru paper, a silk-thredded paper that is fascinating -- if unpredictable -- to work on. The silk threads pick up the watercolor and pull it into the paper thus giving the background a cracked stucco look. Inasmuch as my palette colors are somewhat limited, I was enthralled to see the effect Cad Red and Copper had on my golds and browns. What a fun piece to do.
