Port Wine

“Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else’s life forever.”
– Margaret Cho

Port Wine – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor and Gouache on White Art Spectrum Colourfix

Art Spectrum Colourfix is a fine tooth sanded paper, designed for pastels.  I love doing watercolor on it.  This painting was challenging and fun!  It is from my WDE at WetCanvas and the image is a photo by Agnesdale.  It’s another great photo I found in the Reference Image Library at WetCanvas.

About Margaret Cho

Margaret Cho, the outspoken Korean-American comedian and actor, made television history as the first Asian-American with her own TV series, All American Girl. She was born in 1968 in San Francisco and has mined her life for extremely successful one-woman shows, including I’m the One That I Want and Notorious C.H.O., both of which spawned albums, movie versions, and books. When not touring with her comedy, Cho works now in Hollywood as both an actress and a director.

    I really like this still life, Beth, especially the red colors in it. The green leaves and the spiral thingies on the wall. Very nice!
    I have never tried this surface. Is the paper sanded or toned?..or the white that I see on the tabletop?

      Thanks, Leslie! The paper feels like fine sand paper and this sheet is the white of the table top. It comes in variety packs (cools or warms) and is pretty expensive. I usually wait for a sale. 🙂
