Keith Arches Aquarelle


Or should I spell it Aqvarelle?

I painted this on the paper that covers a new pad of Arches watercolor paper. I am going to put it in the pocket of the next full-size mole that comes my way in round 2 or 3 (whichever comes first.) at is 7 x 10 and painted in gouache. There are real (unused) stamps on it. Some are to help mend the tears I made when removing the black cover sheet and others are to balance out those doing a mending job. I was going to use stickers, but couldn't find them. I will come back here later and announce whose mole got this painting. (Click image to view larger).

I love the gems you put in everyone pockets Mary. Does everyone else snoop through the whole pocket as the book comes around? I do. ;)

Agreed! I love the green on this one... Nice touch!

Thanks so much Andrea and Mike! :-D

I always snoop through the goodies in the pockets! You kind of have to, because some people, like me, leave stuff for everyone.

I showed it to Keith's Mum last night and she didn't like it. But I still do! :-D
