Watercolor and Wax on Rice Paper



Villa Nobile, Cortona
watercolor, 8″ x 10″ image
Playing with wax and watercolor again on rice paper. Much planning is required to paint this way. You divide your composition in 5 values, then paint and wax each time. Eventually, you have a wax-coated paper that you have no idea what it will look like until you iron it and remove the wax. The technique definitely keeps you loose!

Tuscany Painting


Be sure to check the photos from the trip to Lake Como, Venice and Tuscany on this site: http://jannstravels.com/travel-blog/. It has been non-stop painting stimulus and so very much fun. Having my daughter with me to share some painting and touring time has been quite special. We even got to celebrate her birthday in Cortona. Lina had made a wonderful cake.

Watercolor on an Airplane?


And here is my watercolor ‘creation’ of my niece, Olivia while ‘playing’ on the plane, coming home from a Family Reunion in Santa Barbara….. Love how it came out. I really did use to paint on a long plane ride, but because of the scrunched seats, I can no longer do it. This was digital playing.
