I took a class with Connie Furgason in May 2006 "Watercolors & Italics" and this is another direct result from that class. 

I used Arches 90lb HP water color paper. I I used a grid pattern technique to create the rocks and then painted them with many glazes of watercolors. I wrote the words using a dirty Pilot Parallel pen as a dipping pen and all the colors of the watercolors I used for the stones. alternating from one color to the next for each letter. When everything was dry I spattered some dark brown paint.  I matted it with a very light grey granite mat.
