Fury Cove

Once we crossed the 40 miles of water from Vancouver Island to the central British Columbia coast (a voyage that began at 4am), we anchored the boat in Fury Cove and took naps. Whew!

The spot was so pretty, I couldn't resist painting. I used gouache for the first time ever for the underpainting. I got to use my new leak-proof box, too. Isn't it pretty? And so clean!

Done on hot press Arches watercolor paper. Fury Cove.

Your paper definitely looks hot-pressed! Then you paint it, and it looks beautiful.

Fave so far.

Thanks for the comments! I had my doubts about hot press holding much pastel, but it turns out to do a fine job, if you're not too heavy-handed with the beginning layers.
