"At Play on Cannon Beach" 22 x 30 inch Watercolor on Lanaquarelle 300 lb. hot press paper
I spent endless hours constructing castles and dams to divert streams on Oregon beaches as a kid. It was great fun. The kids in this scene still appear to be in the planning stages of their monumental project and no doubt will have the stream diverted a good 10 feet to the north by the time the tide comes in.
This is my second piece painting on 300 lb. Lanaquarelle hot press paper. I like it so far, but it's definitely a lot different than the 300 lb. Arches cold press paper I usually use. This paper seems to work better with layering some how. I seem to be able to put several layers over each other without disturbing the lower layers.
