An untitled abstract....

Untitled.  Watercolor.
About 6 x 3.75 inches.
This is not the best photo, but you get the idea, right?  I am using scrap paper to test out a new (or new to me) set of color combinations.  This is the second in this palette and it's really a small wet-in-wet doodle.  You can see the first one here

I've been seeing that Daniel Smith is reformulating their quinacridone gold.  That is not good for me, seeing as it's one of my favorite (ie used often) colors. 

Phthalo blue rs, quin gold, and undersea green on fabriano 140lb cold press paper.

And then a doodle, where I really like the colors. It's also weird how I can't see what needs to change until I frame it for a photo. . #watercolor #abstract #artistsoninstagram #fb

Three Little Abstracts

Three Little Abstracts.  Watercolor & Caran D'Ache Crayon.
Each about 3 inches square.
I love doing these.  Like little relaxing puzzles. 

All in the same palette I've been working with lately.  Most recently seen in my 13th of 100 bouquets, here.

The backdrop is a bar towel from Target.  (They make the best dish towels ever, but mine are getting pretty mangy.  One of the pieces is covering a hole in the towel.)

Phthalo blue gs, phthalo green, quin violet, and indian yellow.  One color of orangey gold crayon.

Paper--some scrap 300 lb cold press.  Probably kilamanjaro from cheap joes.
