Mewsette’s Blue Nap Note Cards, and What She and Giuseppe Thought of My Art

“Mewsette’s Blue Nap” is a loose watercolor I painted in indigo blue on watercolor paper. When I paint them I cover the paper in more or less her silhouette, leaving little gaps of white and adding heavier coverage where there are shadows. Then I work into the silhouette while wet for the mid range tones, […]
