Longing For Spring

Longing For Spring
Image size 6" x 8"

This small abstract is watercolor on paper but I used an acrylic gloss medium as a finish coat.  The shine really enhances the texture of the paper.  

I love these colors.  They remind me of the fresh new growth of spring, which is my favorite time of year.  I added some gold metallic acrylic paint on top and swirled it into the gloss medium while it was still wet.  This is a small abstract.  I would really like to do something like this in a much larger format.
