I started this drawing with the stop sign and worked my way up the tree to the hot dog stand. Suddenly a cyclist showed up so I quickly put him in.
Then I got a wood panel from the art store,
I lightly sanded the front and back.
I sprayed the painting 3 times with Krylon UV-Resistant Gloss, which is a clear acrylic coating. It is non-yellowing, moisture resistant and protects against UV light rays. Then I adhered the painting to the panel with non-toxic Weldbond.
This is the Krylon product that Aquabord (same company that makes Gessobord) recommends for watercolours that are not under glass.
I'm very happy with the professional look of presenting watercolour this way.
