This painting was a test piece that I did with the Schmincke student watercolor pans. I’d never tried Schmincke before, or any other watercolor pans. Normally for watercolor I would’ve used tubes, and I’d never enjoyed watercolor painting before this piece. The original painting is a small one, about 5”x7”, on cold press watercolor paper. I am really pleased with how the painting turned out. I learnt a lot about watercolor painting whilst creating this piece, how the color and the paint behave on cold press paper to name a few. Since then, I moved on to the artist level Schmincke watercolor pans and tubes and they do wonders for me.
