2. Traditional watercolor on Fabriano cold press 140#, a rose painted in Sandy's class. It is from her photo reference and the "fence" was put in to keep some pale colors in the background and I taped it with artist tape and pulled if off after the fact. Some of the colors bled through which I like. This is also on 11 x 15 paper (1/4 sheet) but it's not carried out to the edges so you can mat it down to 9 3/4 x 12 1/8. The white edge is unpainted paper - created by taping around the painting and then putting the tape off when done.
Each painting is shown pinned on my bulletin board in my artroom. Colors are as accurate as I can get them - not much variation from the photo to reality. I'm showing the edges so you know how you can mat them.
Good luck - and Enjoy! Times are hard. A gift lifts the spirits of the receiver and the giver :)
