Our completed artwork for this topic can be found   ----HERE---

From Maxine ....

    Making landscapes with credit card and watercolour is something that I have done in the past and a technique that is lovely. Maggie mentioned it to me when I came last time. I've attached two rather poor photos of two images I made a long time ago which were made using credit cards.

I also found some good videos which people may like to see in advance.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-Zq16Mt38o  This is an American artist, Debra Lyn Rosenbach, who takes the technique a little further -

Her great piece of advice is to bring an old towel to protect the table and absorb the water - I think this is a very good idea!

Strong watercolour paper, is best for this - or stretched paper on board - ideally two or three pieces as there will be drying time!
