Post Cards

At one time people would send post cards to their friends back home when on holidays. As I had this package  of pre-made cards of water colour paper for some time now,  it was worth a try.

These are 4″×6″ in size, 140 lbs Strathmore paper. It takes me allmost as much time to make these mini-pictures as it would for a normal size; same thought process. I prefer larger sizes with more room for my hands to move around; 9″ x 12″ minimum.

These were produced at the kitchen table, copied from (my own) photographs, when we were killing time inside during extended periods of rain.
