Still Waters is featured in the book “Splash 16 - The Best of Watercolor: Exploring Texture.” One of the things that drew me to this scene from the start was the contrast in texture - the smooth flowing water against the craggy, rocky cliff. I love to paint texture, using both a palette knife and various brushes. Watercolor allows you to pour the paint on the paper, which was the perfect technique for communicating the smooth water. This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
