|Autumn Abstract. 13 x 9.5 inches. Watercolor.|
I can see it from my front window when I'm painting at the kitchen table, and when I started the painting, I was shooting for semi-realistic. I had neither a good composition (too centered), nor good colors (I started with indian yellow, hansa yellow medium, and ultramarine blue).
This is how it evolved into an abstract, with carbazole violet added as the last layer for darkness and shapes.
I think it's a combination of beautiful and ominous, or like autumn.
