I got a wonderful gift bag from a co-worker two years ago. It was this one by Jean Tucker:
And I was inspired to paint this:
I used a combination of my new Derwent watercolour pencils and tube Winsor & Newton watercolours. I started out with the pencils, and then when things started going awry, I panicked and turned to the more familiar tube watercolours to salvage it. I painted this on Strathmore’s 140 lb cold-pressed watercolour paper.
I love Jean Tucker’s other gift bags:
Thanks for looking!
