I ordered a product from Daniel Smith called Watercolor Ground. It is supposed to allow you to repaint areas after you apply it. That might save some paper!
I'll probably start a few more backgrounds while I've got supplies all over the kitchen. That will save some drying time next go-round. You have to work in stages on these paintings to allow drying time.
Meanwhile, I need to get back to quilting on the longarm this week. I have a baby quilt ready to go, and quite a few charity quilts for the guild.
