Watercolor Canvas Board?

    A few weeks ago I came across this pack of 3 Watercolor Canvas Boards.  Now maybe I'm a little behind the times, but I'd never seen watercolor 'canvas'.  So today I tried this little 5x7" and I must say it was a very different experience.. It's like painting on canvas, so what's the deal?  Totally different than paper, and it says it is primed with acrylic to accept any kind of media. WELL !

  2. For your first time with it you took to it like a duck to water! I think you allowed yourself to be free and play, let the painting happen. Lovely.

  3. This is lovely BJ. Until now I have never tried that watercolor canvas board, although I heard and read about it from artists who like to paint on it. It seems interesting to try, your flower looks fantastic on it.

  4. What's the verdict? Will you be doing more paintings on the canvas? I can see how it would be a whole new look, and eliminate the need for glass and frames! The painting you did is beautiful!

  5. BJ - I like what you achieved here on this canvas. I have some watercolor canvas packed away with some of my supplies - need to pull them out and give it a try. Thanks for inspiring me. That poppy really pops!!

  6. Another beauty from you. I have used Daniel Smith' Watercolor Ground on Canvas. It really is DIFFERENT from wc paper and takes some getting used to.
