Celebrating Our Differences


This image (double click on image to see it larger) is watercolor on Yupo paper, a very slick watercolor paper that I've just started experimenting with. It's pretty forgiving & you can push the pigment & washes around and pull them back up, but it's also a little frustrating because the washes & pigments come up so easily. It took an hour to work just the faces--they went through a lot of changes, some not so cute!

I love it Linda! It's true to life your piece. If the Good Lord had wanted us all to be alike He would have made us that way. This is wonderful and I adore the faces and colors! Wonderful work my friend. I have the same paper and I like working in gouache on it more than the water color. Keep playing around with it. Again great work as far as I am concerned!

That paper sounds pretty challenging to me, Linda. There is a real nice rythym to this composition.

Love this, Linda. Playful with a great message.

It reminds me of finger painting one of my favourite things to do as a child. It has a lovely flow and the colours are great. It is playful.
