Magnífica textura, muy bien conseguida.

Firstly, the eye is impressed, and the senses are awed
Secondly, interest is roused
Thirdly the subconscious scans the database for a likeness ... 'Scotch in the Rocks'
Fourth ... a thirst!

The previous post looks like a Turner sunset with reflections on the water.

These experiments are really awe-inspiring and exciting ... bravo, Jane

I like the texture very much, I have two beautiful books of Ann, but not "watercolor textures."
Your texture and atmosphere are a perfect couple, Jane!

Beautiful colour and texture Jane.

I used this techique as the base for a large piece - Dragon Gate. I overlaid the original tissue and watercolour with oils and gold leaf, letting sections show through. The base like this leads to all sorts of experimentation. I shall have a look for Ann's book, thanks for sharing.

I came here to congratulate you on your SAA award, came across this one and just had to comment. This is stunning Jane and stands alone as a painting. I too love that book along with her new one which is even more inspiring. I was also fortunate to see her work in the SWA Exhibition yesterday, it's on an even higher level.

JANE MINTER ha detto...
