First people painting of 2012
I've been working on this painting for the last 4 days. There are a few things that I like about it, but mostly, I'm just relieved to be done. It was not fun to paint. And when it comes down to it, isn't that what we're in this for.....the experience of ENJOYING the process? It's been so long since I've worked in pure watercolor, and I needed a painting for the Transparent Watercolor of America show, so I promised myself to get one done! I called it, "Between 2 Worlds" because I could see orbs floating around. I used a 30 minute study for the idea for this painting.
