Fifteen Blessed minutes of rain today. Hail, thunder, pouring rain. It started raining harder, and then stopped suddenly. As if someone had flipped a switch. Bizarre, and interesting.
Stayed muggy, no cool down. But the sweet, clean scent of rain was still appealing.
Both of these paintings are nearly all Indigo. The greys are what’s left after the paint ran off the page. I used granulating medium, and mixed indigo with a couple other colors, hoping they would separate on the paper. Well, it barely worked on #95. There is a hint of pure blue there. I need to do more experimenting with this. Looking forward to it!
I have shared this Yucca with you before. The real one.
Here it is now.
And here it is, with company. I have an idea for this as a mixed media piece. I just wish I could have seen what kind of bird these are. The shadow had them incognito.
