In writing songs I’ve learned as much from Cezanne
as I have from Woody Guthrie.
I thought I botched this. When I finished, it looked too dark. Some of the paint was still wet, so I was hoping that would fix it. Watercolor always dries lighter. I left it to sit, and I took a break. Took a nap actually. Haha.
When I went back to it. I was pleasantly surprised. Whew! I rewet a couple of areas where I had hard lines, added a little more color to help disguise what I could not soften. I added more turquoise to the large pad, and maybe I went overboard. But I like it. Haha.
The indigo areas dried sort of greyish. So I added sap green in some areas, more indigo in others. And I darkened a few spots. Haha. Yeah, I know. Changed my mind.
Maybe I went to dark over all. But I am surprisingly, completely happy with this. Some areas of the background look slightly grey , it is the paper texture. But I can live with that. Haha.
Lesson from the universe. If you are not sure, walk away. Come back later and play. 🙂
