teacup and blues

Teacup and Blues; watercolor on paper; 13" x 10"

It's so nice to come back to watercolor.  I didn't know how much I had been missing it!  The juxtaposition of spontaneaous with premeditated actions is so wonderfully available in watermedia.  It's also very nicely preserved if one can leave it be.  Maybe that's what's so captivating about this media - it encourages you to live in the moment and relish it.

And the paper!  The gorgeous Arches cotton paper is almost too hard to cover up.  I'm glad this composition called for so much of it to remain untouched.
