This lovely painting was painted in record time.... on vellum paper.

I wanted to try a different surface to see how watercolor would behave.

It was quite fun... and the painting just rolled off the brush.

It's impossible to see what you've done... because the wash is so wet throughout the painting. You must let it sit and dry -- before you can tack vertically on the wall.

At the end of the day... I looked at it -- and decided it was worth keeping and pursuing vellum for other pieces.

I really like the palette of the gator..and the freedom of the paint!
