I decided to enter a "cinco de mayo" show at a local gallery that requires all the artwork to be no larger than 5". I love painting small and my favorite surface for years has always been Crescent Watercolor board. I bought a small panel of "Aquabord" mounted on a 2" cradled birch panel. A few of my favorite watercolor artist's use this, so I decided to try it too. I have my design sketched out for a life size Anole Lizard that I took photos of in a bougainvillea plant. They are such wonderful creatures and I hope I do him justice.
