Blue/Orange/Gray: Developing Some Abstracts
Today, I took one of the paintings and finished it with a crayon overlay. Finished piece above. Can you tell which one it was? Yeah, too stripey with a weird growth. It's the second abstract I've finished with that blue. You can see the first HERE. I should probably finish all five so that they're interconnected by color, yes?
Cobalt blue, quin burnt orange, quin red, and undersea green (all daniel smith) and overlaid with light blue and light gray caran d'ache crayon.

Abstracted flowers on arches board? Not sure. The idea was to use what i found on my shelves. #watercolor #abstract
Found Some Claybord!
This is a piece that's 5 x 7 inches, and one of the big advantages is in the framing. No glass. Can plop it right in the frame. I tried mounting watercolor paper at the end of last year, and I'm not particular enough. To mount paper requires patience and attention to detail. You can look at my painting style and know that's not me!
I liked the way it handled the water and paint. I did the first cut yesterday and went back today to add some darks and a tiny bit of gray crayon just at the horizon line. I'm pretty pleased.
Indian yellow, phthalo blue gs, and quin violet with a touch of gray caran d'ache.
