Great WallPosted: August 14, 2012
This isn’t the Great Wall of China but it is a great wall of stone to paint in the Chinese section of the Botanical Gardens. I’m not quite sure what paper I painted this on because I have some small remnants of watercolour paper with no visible watermarks, but this was like painting on a paper towel. The paper just soaked up all the pigment and it was near impossible to get a hard edge. Just as I was finishing this some workers came along and placed some inflatable balloons that were supposed to look like the Great Wall, except in plastic. Glad I got my sketch in before that.
