Framing watercolor paintings can be expensive - Properly framed, they look great, right?
I accumulate many paintings starting as warm up sketches or demos during my workshops and travels. But - framing can be a big expense for me so I decided to present my paintings as did early Egyptian art work... painted paper glued onto wooden panel.
So, it's not a new idea.
Using acrylic gel medium as your adhesive, mount the artwork into a canvas or wooden panel. No framing, mats or glass. Plus I like the contemporary presentation!
