Flower Abstraction in White
I taught my watercolor class tonight and was busy all day, so I did this small abstraction after I returned from class tonight. I drove home through freezing rain - the ice never did melt completely off of the windshield. We are in the midst of a winter storm that is supposed to last through Wednesday, so guess there will be lots of time to paint. :)
This quick watercolor is approximately 5" x 7" and is painted on some inexpensive 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
This is almost completely negative painting leaving the white of the paper for the flowers - I added some callagraphic detailing with the sharpened handle end of a paintbrush dipped in sepia watercolor paint. Sometimes I really enjoy getting all "loose!" You didn't know I could be a loose woman, did you?
