Artist Beverley Coates, Watercolor 17x17
Faces: The "smiles" of pansies are spotlighting the ambience of water from a watering can. To her artist's eye, Beverley Coates was attracted by their amazing stamina and by their wide range of vivacious colors. This painting is archivally sealed.
To protect a painting instead of a glass covering, it is finished with archivally sealed coatings of acrylic and varnishes. Though it is a time-consuming process, the finished result is hardy and looks as though it has a wax covering.
