"Atmosphere of Quiet"
(unavailable....6" x 6".....Watercolor on Fabriano 140 lb. CP....mounted on a flat panel)
"Neutrals create an atmosphere of quiet." Eliminating a lot of detail and using neutrals is just one way of creating visual quietness. Rainy days and gray skies do the same thing. I think it's time to curl up with a good book. (Dream on!)
Since it is raining (praise God!), I thought I would slosh around in mono printing today. And if the first mono print isn't enough color and texture...let it dry slightly and do another print on the part you need more color. In fact, you can do this a few times and push it to the limit. I also wrote into the wet paint with a bamboo pen and a few erratic lines to create some movement.
And that is it for today. Kiln formed glass is on my agenda today. And there you have it...just a few more things to think about.
