Experiment II ~ A Loose Direct Approach to Watercolor


"Experiment, experiment, experiment -
until it finally flows from within you.
It is a hard road. But the result is also
a deep inner satisfaction."
~ Jack Dickerson

Today's transparent watercolor was painted while standing, like my first experiment, directly on Yupo paper without any preliminary pencil lines or even a rough sketch. It was started with a pretty good idea of the desired subject and composition, but I remained flexible while working, listening to what the painting asked for and allowing the piece to evolve without too many preconceived boundaries or restrictions. I am finding this direct approach rather exciting and satisfying.
