I seem to have neglected my blog a little bit, haven't I? I usually only remember to post something here when I've finished a piece that I like and I've been either just doing panel prep work to get some panel-mounted canvases ready to paint on or I've been messing around with watercolors as here. So the things that I consider to be unsuccessful experiments take just as much time but never see the light of day.
This one I kind of like, though. I was mainly wanting to try out this paper that I inherited but hadn't used before (Arches hot press watercolor paper) so I didn't care too much if it worked or not. I was looking out the window of my studio at the rain making plips (that's a word, right?) on the driveway and drew in the pencil lines. The watercolor marks are kind of weird and I'm not sure how I feel about the grid-like texture of the paper when you get up really close to it. But I do like how I can look at it and see the rain.
