The experiments continue

Thank you everyone who commented and sent me notes about my previous post. I am enjoying the spontaneity of these experiments and your kind remarks mean a lot. Here is another, Neocolor II crayons, a little watercolor pencil, washed and sprayed with water, then dry colored pencil on top, on a 7 x 10 inch Arches hot press block.

Ooooohhh...I LOVE this one, Ann - those purple shadows, the runs on the edges...spontaneous and sun-filled and lovely!

I really like the glowing colors in this one, as well as the softness. Spraying the water on it gave it a nice, painterly effect. nancy

I like the misty, mystery of the finished product. I'm sure I'd overwork it and destroy that when it was dry and these are just marvelous.

I love the juiciness of these - the water really has a wonderful overall effect.

This is lovely - especially the 'watery' look around the edges.

Such display of confidence! I love the mixed media result, and this is just wonderful!
I am sensing that your work is getting really matured lately and it seems like you're getting there from playing around with different tools ^^ What an awesome way to grow!

i really like this little landscape - the way the edges just sort of "happened" is beautiful! You inspire me!
