Seasonal Warm-up

It was a dark, cold, and rainy day; depressing until I picked up the brushes and Brusho watercolors.  Very fun experimenting with Christmas trees; this medium forces you to stay loose. I finally found the paper I like best with this-Fabriano Artistico 300#. It's thick and smooth and takes a lot of punishment, plus you can bleach out areas for white. (just make sure you get fresh air when bleaching!)

I'm not familiar with brusho, but I will research it. I love the freshness of your colors and it's never too early to start thinking about Christmans!
