Watercolour painting

posted in: Art | 0

I can’t remember the last time I did a watercolour painting that didn’t involve collage, sewing, or other mixed media. I started watercolour when I was 18, and for a few years it was my only medium.

I was stuck in traffic last week, and as usual I spent the time looking at nature along the side of the road. I noticed that the daisies were floating in areas of lighter grass than areas without daisies. As this pattern floated slowly past the window, I thought of doing a watercolour. This painting doesn’t really resemble the scene I was looking at very well, but here it is anyway. Not quite done yet though: have to let the paper dry thoroughly enough to remove the masking fluid, which is usually best left overnight.
