I am painting a typtich for a commission. The client wanted a large original watercolor painting on a canvas. I had to figure out how to do this. Its been a good learning experience. First I learned about Golden Absorbant Ground from a wonderful clerk at our Artists and Craftsmen shop in Hillcrest in downtown San Diego. I was looking for something called Fredrix Watercolor Canvas but that wasn't carried in our local shops in San Diego. Actually I think the Absorbant Ground is more versatile. However, you need to paint at least 3 layers of it on the canvas.
The painting is almost finished. I just got some feedback from the client and need to make some slight changes.
I will post the finished painting soon.
