New Mixed Media Painting

"Agavetito"
4" x 6"
mixed media - watercolor and pastel
on Canson XL watercolor paper
I have been feeling like painting in watercolor.  To achieve a more brilliant contrast, I added pastel on top.  Once I used spray fixative, the darks darkened and the lights got richer.  I don't usually spray fix..but found it important for this piece to 'do it's thing'.

Comes already framed..
with matboard and glass.
Check it out on Etsy .

Great contrast of the complements, Pattie. Well done organic looking texture.
