I painted this last night. Reworked it today, not sure if it’s a save or a blotch.The original is below. Whaddya think?

The foreground obviously needed something. So I went in with a small brush. I had in mind that I would soften some edges. You can do that with watercolor on paper. On Yupo, rewetting is more like erasing. I used thicker paint. More pigment, less water. That helped a bit.

I really like this technique. I want to get better at it. This was painted using a credit (gift) card instead of a brush. You don’t have control, but you also get lots of happy accidents. 🙂

Every canvas is a journey all its own.
