A little preview to promote the new blog post that will come soon. Color mixing grids are my favorite way to prepare for new artwork. Watercolor pigment is more friendly when we know a bit of what to expect. I'm working to bring some great new information in this tutorial so stay tuned! -Christy

The Ivy Ranch on the Brazos River: An Art Commission. Life has taken me off course lately but I'm attempting to get back to consistently writing about my art experiences. This artwork at 22" x 30" in size, was such a joy and pleasure to create! I look forward to more opportunities like this one!!!
