summer expressions....


Mixed Media on 8"W x 10"H heavy watercolor paper
Ready to frame


I am calling this one mixed media as it is a combination of watercolor and acrylic paint.  However, it is mostly light layers of acrylics over the initial blocking in with watercolors. Gesturally drawing with a black watercolor pencil was also a part of the foundation.  Later, as the painting progressed the pencil was dipped in water for a softer point and lines were pulled out, giving more definition. Love how a line can have various pressure points creating various values and in turn more interest.

A union created by the bringing together of various elements of line and color.
