Trial number 2 was done with traditional watercolour techniques ie watercolour paint and miskit.
Judy was experimenting and tried a combination of watercolour paint and crayon to capture the atmosphere of a late evening kayak ride across a lake in Ontario. The result was- interesting.
Judy was going to finish this painting by adding a background colour. Carolyn says, “Leave it!” Any comments?
Carolyn is going dotty again! This was one of those careful, tedious paintings that was created with micro pencil strokes, minute blobs of masking fluid and a tiny brush. Of course all that work pays off in the end! I like the runny, wet in wet effect in the back to show the rain versus the tight, crystal clear droplets. That’s a strange phenomenon: that individually perfect orbs become something that obscures light and clarity when they mass as rain. I like the way the background runs upward, counter intuitively, to compliment the reflections that turn the world upside down.
