"Venice Canal" WIP 2 (work in progress)
14" x 18"
Here is Stage 2 of my Venice watercolor pour painting. here I masked out the areas I wanted to remain after the first pour, and did the 2nd pour, wetting my paper with water first, and pouring in the same order of colors as yesterday. Keep in mind, the Friskett can not stay on the paper for too many days or it will be idfficlut to remove, so when I start a pour project, I plan to finish it withina couple of days. I'm liking what's happening in the water in the foreground.... and hope I can keep that pretty close to what it is now by the time I am done. More tomorrow!
My subject matter is the world around me... I am endlessly interested in nature, travel, people, and those are the things I love to paint. I travel as much as I can, and am never without my sketchbook, watercolors, and camera, capturing what I can to bring back to my studio for further examination. I adore paint! I adore color! And I LOVE having the gift of being able to work with them!
