New Beginnings #2

Watercolor 14″ x 20″

It would be very rewarding indeed if all the efforts over the many years are paying off, and I am finally getting the hang of this soft and gentle medium. I am certainly enjoying the doing of it, and the pace too. You have to be quick and gestural and trusting on the one hand, and then careful and patient and attentive on the other. And you have to allow the paint and water to do their thing, so you can’t be too controlling.  And you know pretty quickly whether or not a piece is working, unlike oils, which can take weeks and months before you know it’s either come through and works, or doesn’t, and never will.
