Sidewalk Artist

I painted most of this last weekend with my friends in the All Media Events forum on Wetcanvas.com but I didn't get it finished until the next painting event started so I'm just posting it here for now. It measures 8 x 10. I don't usually stretch my small paintings (meaning tape them down well with that sticky brown tape watercolorists use) but after finishing some larger paintings that I had stretched, I decided it really is worth it to be able to have a completely flat, smooth painting when you're done so I decided to stretch this small one and I'm glad I did.

This is awesome, Kathy. And, I love the little pigeon. Nice touch!

Love it! I love stretched paper too but have very bad luck stretching. What do you stretch it on?
