From exercise to art


 This began as a simple exercise in trying out some new watercolors, seeing their color & how they glaze. I was thinking of growing grass & sunshine as I was making this &  really  liked the abstract look that was developing. I added drops of acrylic paint, gave them little tails... sort of like little bugs, dont you think? The thick acrylic drops dried with an indentation in them adding even more texture.
I'm not listing this in my shop, but i thought it was so cool that even a simple exercise could become art.

  6. I really like this and can hardly believe that you started off just doing some experimenting. I guess that's how art happens a lot of the time, isn't it. :)
