Wet on wet

The flower above, is painted on hot press paper and I enjoyed how easy it is to pick out the lights with a flat and slightly moist brush. Also easy to blend colours,
Whereas with the watercolour  of apples in a glass bowl (above) because of using heavy, 300 lb. Arches paper, I used 2 glossy peices of paper and a sea sponge to pull up the white highlights in the bowl of apples.

Fun morning, applying wet on wet glazes and blending opposite colours for shadows. I also had a great time with spattering (in a subtle but effective way).

Transparent Water colours
My beautiful selection of transparent water colours.


Don Juan: "To seek freedom is the only driving force I know. Freedom to fly off into that infinity out there. Freedom to dissolve; to lift off; to be like the flame of the candle, which, in spite of being up against the light of a billion stars, remains intact, because it never pretended to be more than what it is: a mere candle."
Carlos Castaneda

Love and Light,
