This is the original watercolor. It is a painting of cotton in Mississippi.
(Watermark will not be on your painting when you receive it.)

The work is my impression of our beautiful cotton in Mississippi. If you look at the close up photos, you can see the delicate detail and the curling tendrils of the stems. Each cotton bloom has been painted and detailed with black ink. The work has the colors of green, indian yellow, bright red, rose madder, thalo blue, cerulean blue, gold ocre and sepia. Hope you enjoy this painting! Will be wonderful in your home or give as a gift of original artwork.

Signed by the artist on the front and back

The work is painted on heavy 300lb, acid free, Arches fine watercolor paper. The paper was wet heavily and the color was applied and lifted in order for the paint to run and blend together. Quickly, the paint is lifted off of the paper before it dries to show the white paper beneath. More paint is added with a smaller brush to create the stems and leaves. The fine delicate stems and leaves are created with black Speedball ink, quill and nib. This painting looks fabulous with a bright white mat and black frame.

Only professional art supplies were used for this work.
