5″ x 7″ Watercolor
This one is a little bit of a happy accident. I placed some stretched out gauze across a piece of watercolor paper and dabbed color onto it. (I got a little too far into it, when I realized I forgot to mask off a place for my fish. )
After it dried, I removed the gauze and continued with a little negative painting around the coral. Not to be undone by my own forgetfulness, I painted a little fish on a scrap of watercolor paper and attached it to the painting. I think it will make a nice birthday card for a child. I send hand painted cards to all my family members. They love it!
Just for fun, I pulled the colored gauze out of the trash can and scanned this one. Isn’t that fun?
An even better birthday card, perhaps?
Gotta love those happy accidents.
