Watercolor on wood prepped with Golden Acrylic absorbent ground.
Colored pencil on wood prepped with tinted acrylic ground for pastel (also a Golden Acrylic product)
Both of these are done on the 20" round decorator tables. Prep the table first with a primer. Let it dry and then paint or roll on either the absorbent ground (watercolor) or the tinted acrylic ground for pastel (colored pencil).
These pieces are in the very beginning stages.
