How did this watercolor painting turn out so small? It might have been the 4x4 inch paper I am using, even though I intended to fill the page with my subject. I also had to keep my painting away from the paint mess from the previous sheet. These splotches happen when I close the book before the paint is dry.
This direct watercolor sketch is a paint of a Holbein Tube watercolor paint. The color is Ultramarine Deep. It was painted without a preliminary drawing. I am taking part in the #30x30DirectWatercolor2020 challenge.
