Stretched Watercolor Paper

This week, looking for a way to change things up, I tried out a new method: stretching watercolor paper on canvas stretcher bars. I have always been a bit jealous of the way a canvas can have such a complete feeling, no framing or matting necessary. The end result was quite successful.

I've never found it particularly necessary to stretch my watercolor paper given the small size of my work and the restricted amount of water I use but with the canvas finish it may be my new way to prep for most of my painting work.

And though it's just a test piece, it's wall ready with some of our other work around the house.
