No. 5--The Demo
You can see some iterations of this piece in my practice painting, and then my first final version. Then I decided to go back with some opaque watercolors and lighten things up in the background.
Two days later I went and did a show, and then collapsed in a heap and didn't paint for a while.
Anyhow, because I took this painting along with me, it's already matted. It's fairly large.

You can see where I must have gotten finger prints on the yupo in the foreground where the paint won't take. #watercolor #abstract #landscape
Set of Four Abstracts
A while ago, I started working on some small abstracts, and I matted them all up, and boom, sold them. So, being sneaky, or not interested in accumulating a bajillion pieces of art in my basement, I thought I'd see if I could get that magic going again.
These pieces are on hot press, which takes the crayon, well, it's awesome. You can see the first cut of watercolors here. It's isoindoline yellow, lemon yellow, and phthalo blue rs. The crayon over the top is an intense yellow green, gray, and a tiny bit of deep red.
A side note--getting all the images organized in blogger? It wasn't working. I highly recommend a website (app?) called canva. Very useful.

Base of some abstracts on hot press paper. My neighbor rang the doorbell half way through and I jumped and spattered paint all over. Sigh. #watercolor #abstract #workinprogress
