For the September Virtual Paintout I chose the Herr's mill bridge in the Lancaster, PA paint out , I liked it for its old worn look with water under 2 parts of the bridge ; the creek and water for the old mill . For this painting I used Van Gogh watercolors on 11"x15" 400 series watercolor paper by Strathmore : )
Winkelman , AZ , smelter and mining site taken from the park several years back ; I used this for an art assignment for a class I took 3 months ago on the Strathmore workshop, a 4 week watercolor course the mind of watercolor : )
I recently saw an add in a magazine or computer advertising the old double-edged razor and checked a few stores and found one at Target and of course bought one made by Van Der Hagen; the razor is made in China , the blades in Germany, you receive 5 with the razor . I haven't tried it yet but am more than ready to soon , in the mean time I did this still life using pastel pencils on tinted pastel paper : )
