I decided it was time to try something a little different yesterday – something of which I had a little less control over. I pulled out some watercolors and began painting a loose design directly onto a piece of glass. I then grabbed a sheet of watercolor paper, soaked it down, and pressed it onto the painting. The result was a very loose wash of color that brought to mind a misty forest. After letting the paint dry, I drew in trees and other forms to create an abstract landscape.
I like the combination of washes against the bold black lines. My only regret is that I could not seem to get the photo to capture the detail and color as well as I’d hoped it would.
