My friend, Dot, likes to work in clay as well as paint. She throws pots with abandon, she even paints with abandon; which my Spelling Ace defines as "an easy, breezy way of doing things".
She gave me a sugar and cream set for Christmas and they made a perfect set up with a pear for a still life. My first attempt was in wet in wet watercolor, the second in acrylic on wet paper. The acrylics are much more stable and leave hard edges, the watercolors are soft edged, an effect I like very much. Tell me what you think.
