    #WorldWatercolorMonth Day 14 prompt: Green With a background of gamboge, I used ferns gathered over 8 years ago (and pressed in an art book) from our lake house. I then used greens in w/c and gouache to positively and negatively paint the ferns. The bursts are from sea green brusho, and look rather blue to me. Scan

    #WorldWatercolorMonth Day 12 prompt: Favourite Place This was the view out my kitchen window at our lake house. It was built in 2006 from our own design, and we lived there for almost 7 years. I miss the lake and the forest that surrounded it. Scan

    #WorldWatercolorMonth day 19 prompt: Fast I thought of doing a fast car, or a fast animal. I considered handfasting, or food fasting. What appealed, though, was a fast painting in an experimental style. I prepared my 140 lb w/c paper with gesso, gloss medium and salt. I pressed some gold metal leaf into the medium and let everything dry overnight. The next day I set out fresh paint in 3 colours: burnt sienna, perylene violet, and my new-to-me aussie red gold. I\'d received a brusho set on Wednesday, and decided to add turquoise brusho to my supplies. I loaded my brush with the 3 paints and drew lines across the damp paper, flipping the brush after each row to make some colours wider than others. I then sprinkled on the turquoise brusho, and a bit of salt. I spritzed here and there with alcohol and water. After all the prep, it took about 5 minutes. The result? Layers. 9\"x12\" I love it!

    #WorldWatercolorMonth Day 6 prompt: Flow I like to experiment with different paints to try capturing the flow of water. This was supposed to be a splash. Scan

    #WorldWatercolorMonth Day 4 prompt: Quiet This was painted with 2 colours ( Moonglow and Ultramarine Turquoise. The splotches of warm tones was a transfer from used cling wrap) which I think adds to the feeling of quiet. Scan

    #worldwatercolormonth Day 3 prompt: Playful I had made a first wash using three colours, just playing with some of my favourite strokes (I\'ll save it for another prompt maybe) But then, I grabbed my w/c pencils for another piece, and realized that several colours needed sharpening. Watching the shaved bits fall apart into 2 categories (wood shavings and pencil shavings) I wondered what might happen if I gathered the pencil shavings and sprinkled them onto w/c paper, then spritzed with water. Here\'s the result: Hmmmm, I wonder what would happen if............ 😉 Scan

    #WorldWatercolorMonth day 2: Texture I played with creating texture on this first wash using plastic wrap, bubble wrap, grid fabrics, and thread. Fun! Now, I wonder what this will become? SDC19568

    I\'ve been playing with earth tones and blues and greens and created 3 Undersea Garden paintings, each 9\" x 12\". I placed them side by side and really like how they look together. Undersea Garden Triptych SDC18325

    On my walks, I\'ve seen the wild grapes clustered on fence posts, and growing over the bushes and trees. The grapes have ripened. SDC18305

    I wanted to practice more allium seed heads, so I took an older piece of paper which had a colour splash as I\'d tested some new colours. Using some of the same colours and some white crayon, I played. Scan
