As the gesso dries; or, back to watercolors

My canvas-on-panel issues aren't entirely worked out yet.  I think my next step is to try clear gesso over a print and see if a more absorbent surface works better.  In the meantime, I've got a coat of regular gesso drying on a plain unprinted canvas mounted to a board.  I usually put 3 coats of gesso down and lightly sand in between each one, so it's going to be a little while before I can start anything on it.

So I pulled out the ol' Yupo again and made a couple more drawings.  These are magnolia buds from some of the pictures I've been taking.  I'll paint these in later but I wanted to make sure I scanned them in first.

It's snowing outside.  I'm so over it.
