I'm looking for a title - so far all I've got is Red Riding Hood, which might be a bit boring Tongue Although actually, if anyone has any idea on how to seal the medium (the watercolours on the canvas) I'd be very appreciative! Since it's not what it's for, I think if I were to wet it I could probably move the paint around, still.
Maybe just call it Red. The viewers brain will fill in the rest Cheesy
Yes, the paint would move around if you got it wet...maybe an  acrylic spray sealer (several light coats) would seal it
That was my working title!  Cheesy
Do you mean just a regular spray fixative? The other thing I was thinking was painting on some sort of sealing gloss, but I'm not sure. The problem with spray fixative is that it can change the colours and I'm not sure how it affects watercolours or canvas, let alone them together!

I love this picture.  If I was naming it I'd be thinking about what RRH is thinking.  She doesn't look worried or fearful, even though we can see that lurking wolf.  You mightn't even need to mention her "official" name because in our culture the story is so well known.  The expression in her face is wonderful and I'm finding it thought provoking. Congratulations on this lovely piece.

It is like a spray fixative, but where that is designed for pencil-chalk and paper there are spray varnishes for paints- a wide assortment at art supply stores. I recommend one that is made by a known art supply manufacture rather than a generic company. This is also available in bottles so you can brush it on. I know brushing and spraying will both work with the canvas- I would be leery of brushing across the watercolor with a sealer- this may smear it before it is sealed where a spray works more gradually and you do not have to saturate the painting- just use several thin coats.

Thank you very much! I'll look out for that!
