watercolor on Indian Village, 5"x 7"
matted and backed to 8"x 10"
I called this Rush because the central angle in the composition gives me that feeling. Also because it's the holiday rush and I wanted to make something cheery and bright. I am using up as much as I can of the watercolor that's already laid out, left over from previous work. The palette is untried though I'm sticking with just a few colors. Also, because of all the sparkly stuff around these days, I put out some metallic watercolors and will try to incorporate some of those over the next couple of weeks.
Here I use Daniel Smith's German Silver which is quite nice but not very showy. I saturated the paper before laying color in which led to some serious blossoms but I think they're pretty so am leaving them alone. Why not?
