A Painting in Progress

posted in: Kay's Musings | 0

November 20, 2019  Here is a series of photos (please excuse the casual quality) of my most recent mulit-layered painting titled Aspen Gold.  It is an unusual process so I thought you might be interested in the “building blocks” of this piece.  The finished painting is the last image.  Some general notes:  wherever the background is wet the fluid watercolor will flow and blend.  Once it hits a dry edge the flow stops.  It doesn’t seep into the dry area.  This is how I manage to create tree trunks, or mountain skylines, or round moons.  Enjoy.
