Posies and Peaches

  Posies and Peaches
 11 x 14
  watercolor on illustration board
  For Still Life 2.  Finished.  Previous step. I love the peaches.  The rose got a bit difficult.  I tried really hard not to get caught up in the details.  I think need to find some more flowers to use :)  Im thinking orchids. 
This is watercolor on illustration board.  Instead of using gesso this time like I did for Tea and Posies I used Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground. It has a different feel then the gesso more like watercolor paper but smoother.  I much prefer painting on the Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground over the gesso.  It layers nicely and I can still pull up lights if I need to.
