I just finished a fun project. I have done a lot of small format paintings in the past, as small as 5”x 7” and many 1/8 standard watercolor sheet in my early classes, but I have never painted trading card size (3”x 4”) until this painting. Drawing it was the biggest challenge; I drew a flower and it was too big to fit the format so I had to start over-and over, and over and over… Once I conquered that, the painting was a real joy. I just did what I normally would do but with a much smaller brush. It wasn’t as quick as one would think as it still took drying time between glazes, etc. So, I’m sharing my very first watercolor trading card.
