Sometimes the ordered, zen-like color-fields feel like a distraction. Feel like a way to avoid diving in and getting messy.
Currently, I am working on an 18" x 22" watercolor based on this smaller version I painted about a month ago. With a narrow selection of colors and repeating lines, it's a meditative activity that I can dive into with relative ease. Once finished, however, I think it might be time to let loose!
