QoR Watercolors on TerraSkin

Cactus Flower on TerraSkin
Image Size 6" x 7.5"
Watercolor

I haven't painted with watercolor on TerraSkin for awhile and I thought that it would be a good surface to try with the QoR watercolors.  I love how bright these colors are!  Paints always look brighter on TerraSkin than on regular watercolor paper because the surface is nonabsorbent and the  colors sit on the surface but these seem even brighter, which I love.  Bright colors make me soooo happy!

I used a bit of artistic license with the colors of the flower.  It was really only pink but I threw in some purple and orange to get a more luminous look.  Most of the texture in the background was achieved by spritzing it with some water while it was wet and some was added with brushwork.
