Water under the bridge


The theme for April at The Documented Life Project is
Colour Safari
(Exploring Inks and Paints)

The Art Challenge is
Week 14.  Watercolours
& the Journal Prompt is
Week 14.  It's Water Under the Bridge
I am looking forward to playing in my art journal this month.

I plan to dive in & resist the temptation to think first.

Learning to let go ...

I love watercolours & how they blend & move around the paper.

Learning to let go ...

I created the mottled effect by dabbing the wet colour with a piece of kitchen towel.

I used Yellow Ochre, Lemon Yellow, Red, Purple with a dash of White.

My Purple had dried solid in the tube, so I just unfolded the end of the metal tube to access the solid block of colour.

Splats & Splashes

Once dried, I added definition to the lettering, using my Faber-Castell black watercolour pencil.

A quick & easy page, just going with the flow ...
