Watercolor attempt #16. “Volkswagen Camper Van” Our family camping trips are complete for 2014 and school planning has begun. Change is in the air. It’s been a good summer filled with lots of happy memories. In honor of all those memories, I painted a Volkswagen Camper Van. (Click on thumbnail for high-resolution image).

Blue shutters and bright red geraniums…I can envision this window along the busy streets of Paris or perhaps the narrow streets of old Quebec.  To make this watercolor painting, I followed a watercolor tutorial by John Lovett and used my new birthday present, a paper stretching board by Ken Bromley, to ensure an unbubbled surface. Both the board and the tutorial worked well. I am happy. (Click on thumbnail for high-resolution image)
