My textured gesso and watercolor barn for Mary Jean, part of a trade on atcsforall.com
5x7 canvas panel
Steps 1 - 4: textured gesso background and first layers of watercolor wash
Steps 5 - 8: Continued layers of watercolor; adding pencil shading, more layers of watercolor and charcoal shading.
In between final layers with charcoal and pencil, I added spray fixative, and ended with several coats of spray sealer.
