There can be something very satisfying in not delving into layers of details, and in coming up with pigment choices that leave much of the surface unpainted.
This is what I felt pulled to get down in the moment.
Oh, and of course the urge to use up some leftover paint.
Below is a detail from this image.
I am including the detail because I think it’s good to see that I was working very delicately and lightly with watercolor washes because this is not watercolor paper—it’s a medium weight drawing paper (now defunct) that I had bound in a journal (about 8.5 x 11 inches) and which had been sitting on a shelf in my storage area. It turned up in the sorting and downsizing and I just pulled it out and said to myself, I’m going to use this now!
Looking at it today I’m missing that paper all over again.
