Watercolor Poppies Studio Update

The photography set up

The watercolor poppies are completed!  I'll share more details in Thursday's post...
This is just a quick shot of one of the steps taken after a painting is finished.
The paintings spent a few days in the flattening process.  My method is dampening the back of the paper, layering in towels and weighting down with heavy books.
The next step, they needed to be signed.  One of them had such a dark background, the black pen would not have been easily visible.  This is the only time I use white paint.  ONLY.  
That's just my personal standard.  I like how it turned out and might change how I sign paintings from this point forward.
