Flash Back - China

These months I got 2 exhibitions. So I decided to use some material that I had not time to paint before. Here is one of the paintings done 2 days ago after my Chinese memories.

Konstantin Sterkhov. Red Dress. 44x64.

What is interesting, I found in an Art shop an old watercolor paper manufactured over 40 years ago. It does look old and yellowish but has a beautiful texture. It has been a strange feeling to paint on paper almost as old as I am.
