Off to a good start this week, woke up really early today, sent my son back to school after winter recess (all of last week), took my chihuahua Quincy for a long walk, and now back home and about to get busy in the studio with a nice cuppa charlie, but first I think I'll scan and photoshop the new ACEOs and do a little networking and see what you guys are up to this morning.
I'll leave you with two playful abstractions I did yesterday, so much fun! Both were done on Arches 300lbs Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper with Daniel Smith Watercolors and Winsor and Newton Drawing Inks. I simply poured the watercolor pigments on the paper, moved it around randomly and let the paint sit in whatever way it wanted. I used some additives to create special effects, mainly alcohol and Golden Acrylic Flow Release. I then looked for any forms that could look like something recognizable and enhanced it with the drawing inks. On the first one I had a hard time finding any shape that could be something. After a while I thought I saw what looked vaguely like a crab therefore the title Crabstraction. The second one was easy, I saw the flowers right away. It was so relaxing and so much fun to create these pieces, a real blast!
Have a wonderful start of a new week.
