Basking (7”x5” watercolor)


I’ve been working on this little painting a few minutes at a time over a few days.  It began as a very loose, wet pouring exercise and, as usual, it’s hard to know when to stop.  I think I was able to retain a bit of it’s freshness and light.  I’ve used only 4 colors (ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, gamboge, quinacridone gold) in this painting and I like how unified that makes it feel.  Enjoy!
