I want to show two recent paintings I did on watercolor paper. They are both acrylic paint and 8 inches square. They both show the same pattern with a slight variation in orientation and a major variation in color.
The first one I finished was this blue one:
I used tiny white dots in a way I’ve never done before and I love the effect. It gives the whole painting a softer, more ethereal look and also seems a bit loose and playful. There is also a certain indigenous or tribal quality to it.
The second one is warm reddish orange and yellow. I used tiny dots in this one too along with some loose line and edge work that was a lot of fun to put in.
All in all I’m really happy with how they both turned out, now they need to be mounted in some way so they can be hung.
