Happy accidents...



Experimenterend met neocolor II krijt en aquarel washes, gebeurden er hele spannende en onverwachte dingen. Het was mijn bedoeling om zachte schaduwen te creëren tussen stroken kleur. Maar de neocolor ging geheel zijn eigen gang.

Experimenting with neocolor II crayons and watercolour washes, exciting and unexpected things happened. I intended to create soft shadows between strips of colour. But the neocolor had a mind of its own.










Op weg naar een andere kunst tentoonstelling vandaag (zal je er in een volgende post meer over vertellen), liep ik door ongelooflijk mooie groene landschappen. En ik moest denken aan mijn groene washes hierboven. Vind je ook niet?

On my way to another art exhibition today (tell you more about it in a next post), I walked through incredibly luscious and green landscapes. And they reminded me of my green washes above. Don't you agree?

  2. Oh these are fabulous little experiments Judy. They make me want to get my watercolours out and I haven't felt like that for a while. Thanks for showing your gorgeous little happy accidents.

  3. Wonderful colors to represent the poetry feeling of the landscape, painted from you with charming looseness.

  4. Love your interesting washes Judy. It is fun to do work like this as you never know what's going to appear. I can see sunsets as well as those fields.

  16. The washes are delicious! Love the effects that the wet pigment created and that you had the will to let them be.
    Your comment about the fields reminding you of the washes made me laugh, usually it's the other way round, isn't it?! :)
