What a freeing way to start 2015! My hope and wish for this challenge is that it will give me a "license" to experiment more often and more freely instead of concentrating so much on a finished painting. A good mantra would be "let it go". I got a little caught up in doing commissions this year (new for me) and didn't make enough time for play. Just playing with paint is important for growth and discovery. My breakfast nook studio will be the site for endless possibilities!
On the right I did the tubes of water again and also splattered water for more random effects. Used vermillion again but fuller strength to see how bright it could be. Dropped in Schminke helio cerulean both next to and into the vermillion. (could be a little red fox's leg on the right?) Also placed cobalt turquoise light on the left and enjoy this combination.
