Watercolor Wednesday week 5


These were both done by first spraying the paper with a bottle of water and then throwing paint onto the paper and then spraying more water and tilting the board around to flow the paint where I wanted it.  I waited for that to dry and then painted over it.
I also made stamps out of scraps of mat board and scraped grass blades into them with an x-acto knife.  I used the stamp to create the grass in both pictures.
In the second one I masked out the road and splattered masking fluid in the foreground to create the white flowers.

  19. I like the second painting best only because I hate driving through ground fog. . . too much of it in the first one. .reminds me of those days. Love the water color though. Blessings, Janet, PPF
