Inspired by a Spring Landscape and Jean Haines
Both Lorraine and I fell in love with Jean Haines (www.jeanhaines.com) and so we were both playing with some of her book ideas.
In this small work, I added resists of gesso to the paper, then splashed on water, and splashed on paint -- in a combination of my own splash and splatter and Jean's soft, loose, wet approach ... When dry, I enhanced the colors a bit, but kept things high tone .... Fun!
It's raining this morning, and the grey skies, after so much heat and sun, are very restive --- very needed, I'd say! LOL
My figs are finally ripening and the rain will give them a bit more juicyness before I gather them all ...
I'm still catching up ---! LOL
