Blue clotheslinePosted: April 28, 2015
I enjoyed reading my friend Gail Wong’s recent post about her experiments in watercolour where she paints a New York street scene six times. With each try she simplifies the scene even more. It got me thinking that I haven’t done much experimentation lately. I’ve been wanting to work with larger formats so today was the day I moved to bigger. This is not quite a full sheet of watercolour paper — it’s about 22″ x 22″ — but close enough. Unlike Gail, I only painted this once. I think her format may be smaller than mine, possibly a half sheet. I overpainted some of the dark areas so if I try this again, that is what I will work on — getting to those darks in a more direct way. Thanks for the inspiration Gail.
