Answering Some Questions

I'm often asked how I flatten my watercolor paper once it's become buckled and warped from all the washes.  I've explained this in writing plenty of times for people who've messaged me and figured it was probably time to make a video explaining how I do this.  I'm sure it makes a lot more sense actually seeing it as well.   At least I hope so.  Below I'll post two new videos.  One on flattening my art and another short demo on my painting technique.  The second demo also addresses how I adhere my painting to the gator board.  It's really simple but I get this question quite often.  Hope this clears some things up.











Here's a work in progress shot of my new piece "The Secret of Oz".  It's for an upcoming tribute to "The Wizard of Oz" group show at Gallery Nucleus.

Very helpful post! Thanks for sharing your method of drying and flattening your watercolor paper. The piece is looking pretty damn cool, I must say.

Thanks Melisa,
I finished the painting a few days ago. Will post the final soon!

thanks for the videos. (I was creeped out by your popping joints though).

What paints to you use?
