Lady Slipper

I liked the Lady Slipper so much I drew it again, this time in my sketch book.  This was an experiment in seeing how the watercolor reacted to the sketchbook paper which is much thinner.  I'd  done my Funky Owls in this sketchbook and they turned out ok.  This one didn't do as well, mostly in the background.  The paper just soaks the color, as I really knew it would.  I probably should have gesso'd it as I knew I should, but really wanted to see the results.  I think that experimenting with your supplies is more than half the fun of creating.  So just pick up your supplies and just jump right in.
