"Getting Ready to Ride" Horse Scenic by Montana artist, Sandra Merwin, smerwin

This is #2 in "My Montana" series. This is what I see around me. Men walk down the streets in cowboy hats. Formal affairs are called black tie and blue jeans; the men wear a tuxedo top with jeans and boots - and of course cowboy hats.

This miniature is created on 300# Yupo. Yupo is a slippery paper that keeps the watercolor floating until it dries. Regular watercolor paper allows the water to soak into it. Yupo with watercolor needs to be fixed with a watercolor type varnish, other wise getting it wet would cause the painting to float into different puddles. I still can't believe that I did a scenic with figures in watercolor on yupo. All the paint is floating so it is hard to get the lines and modeling that define the tiny forms.
