I have been working on this surprise anniversary gift commissioned by a friend.  This painting is 22 by 30 on Arches cold pressed paper.  Larger than any I have worked on before and more complex than most.  I went very slowly with this, and struggled in spots, but the recipient was quite surprised and I think pleased with it :)


  1. Wow, this is great! I'd be scared to work on a painting that big with watercolor.

  2. Kudos to you, Maria! You have done a wonderful job with a very large and difficult subject.

  3. WOW, Maria! This is beautiful- and all the faces are so well painted (the toughest part!). Congrats!

  4. Wow!!It's gorgeous!! This is wonderful Maria. You do amazing work! love it,Diana

  5. Its really gorgeous, Maria.
    I should imagine they were delighted with it! xx
