[no title]

Lanaquarelle CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

this painting continues from the one last thursday, but with the intent to improvise and blend more consistently.

i laid down a preliminary pattern of bars by pouring color onto the paper, then gradually fused the pools as the paint dried. then i used the same selection of paints to add brushstokes of paint or plain water as edges hardened, colors became imbalanced, or harmonies didn't seem right.

i like the effect, which is earthy and atmospheric at the same time, but feel there is room for improvement in the color selection. i trimmed the sides and either shouldn't have done that or should have trimmed the top and bottom as well.
