The iridescence of the the Rubys throat and the translucence of the delicate flowers made an interesting study in light effects.

Original watercolor painting by Susan Bourdet. Susan Bourdets watercolors are done on a heavy-weight archival 100% cotton rag watercolor board. All framing materials are also archival. Once completed, the watercolor painting has been finished with a penetrating wax sealer. This finish is a combination of bees wax, paraffin, microcrystalline wax and damar resin, which penetrates the top layers of the painting and seals the surface, protecting it from moisture, dirt and dust. This wax finish has been used for a long time in encaustic painting and is often used by watercolor painters as an alternative to glass. The sealed painting is then framed in the same manner as an oil or acrylic work. The surface needs no maintenance, other than light dusting. Watercolor pigments are formulated these days to have very good lightfastness, comparable to oils and acrylics. As with original artwork in any medium, the painting should not be hung where it will be exposed to strong, direct sunlight. Periodically, the surface may be gently dusted with a clean, dry, soft cloth or vacuumed with a soft brush attachment. Avoid all scrubbing, scraping or the use of water or any cleaning chemicals, as these may damage the painting surface. Copyrights are retained by the artist. Image size, 14"H x 16"W.
