My 1st Watercolor Canvas Painting

This is my first attempt at painting on the new watercolor canvas from Fredrix. Its kind of weird painting watercolor on canvas and the canvas acts a lot different than normal watercolor paper. Yet I must say I was quite pleased with how nicely it worked. It was a lot more like painting with oil than with watercolor actually.

This, so far unnamed, painting is 9" x 12". I wanted to try a small canvas to see if I liked it before getting a big one. Now I'm dying to see how a very large canvas would work. Over all I highly recommend this product. It's a lot of fun to use, but it does take a little getting used to.
