Abstract Landscape with Fields after Karlyn Holman

12" x 16" Watercolor

Arches 140#CP

 

Doris and I have been experimenting with different watercolor methods and techniques. One of the experiments Doris asked me to demonstrate was from a Karlyn Holman workshop I took several years ago (see www.karlynholman.com).

 

We began with assorted paints, gauze, Unryu paper, salt and other texturizing materials, and went ahead splattering, splashing and generally slinging paint. WHAT FUN!!!

 

After everything was dried, we spent more concentrated activities finishing the paintings. And even though we worked with simliar materials and techniques, our resutls turned out so differently! l See Doris' :

Today was dedicated to painting as it was raining on and off. But we're continuing our experimenting and playing -- and generally having a BLAST!!!

 

Hope your week is terrific!!
