Artist's note: "Starting on this painting, I had just gotten a new roll of watercolor paper. This paper was behaving very strangely and didn’t blend the colors the way it should’ve.

It was a definite out-of-my-comfort-zone experience and once I received the correct watercolor paper, painting on it was easier than ever."
