Now that I’ve learned a few ways to recycle watercolor fails, I enjoy painting with watercolor more. Throwing good paper away just doesn’t make me happy. This began as a crazy attempt to do something in watercolor, not sure if I even remember what, but no matter. Just add gesso, and it’s all gone! I like the dry brush effect, especially with gesso, as it is so “white”. This way, it adds texture while still covering up the painting behind it.
After covering the old, it was back to my solid old friends, Golden fluid acrylics, to make things right again. Quin Crimson, quin violet, Indian yellow hue, quin burnt orange, quin magenta, quinacridone nickel azo gold, burnt sienna, I just love these colors. Particularly the quinacridones. I love them in every medium! And Kerfe. Every time I work with a grid composition, or even think about grids, I think of you. And you will too, when you check out that link!

Not sure if I should leave this one as is, or try and add more punch. I may just stew on it awhile before deciding. We’ve already made it to the middle of the week! It’s all downhill from here. Wishing you a colorful Wednesday. Peace.
