Finished my first “poured piece.” February 19, 2010

Jennifer in the Hunt

Glad to sign off on this one finally.  Thanks to all of you who have continually offered encouragement and affirmation.  I feel very satisfied with this.  The only finishing touches I added were myriads of branches and limbs in the foreground corners, along with dropped in colors to suggest sparse leaves and blossoms.  I’m happy with the way the alternating warm and cool colors created this sense of mood.  This is my first attempt at poured watercolor, and I’m already looking forward to my next try.  I think I’ve opened a new dynamic after years of pursuing the same trademark style.  We’ll see where it leads.

Thank you very much for reading.

    Absolutely beautiful. Tons of color! Do you mean, you are going to paint using more new techniques and see where it takes you? I think that’s great!

    Yes, that’s exactly my intention. I’ve had a “style” working for a couple of decades now, and it’s so refreshing to see something come from my brush that (to me) is unlike all my other work. I’m excited at the new dynamics of pouring and masking, as well as things I’ve been reading about color theory. I feel like I’m back in school again.

    Thank you, Linda. It’s 16 x 16″. I took it to the gallery and the director really likes it, apparently more than anything else I’ve done previously. My sentiments are the same, but I have to acknowledge that it’s too new and radical and will take me awhile to know how it stacks up against my other efforts.
