Gesso can be so much fun as a material! For this card I brushed in on from all sides towards the center. Before it was able to dry I took my trusty plastic bag and just pressed it down lightly to leave some marks. I let it dry and then started playing on it with watercolors, letting them run over the surface and letting them run together. While all of my postcards have been a consistent vertical format, so they all work well in the postcard gallery, this one just had to be the exception. I tried looking at it all different ways and it just had to go horizontal. Although, as I’m writing this I realize I will probably turn it vertical for the gallery. Artists prerogative!
