Springtime Reflections, 30 in 30 - Day 16

This painting challenge is now over halfway done.  Only 15 days left.  This painting is mostly poured watercolor with a little bit of direct painting at the very end in the trees and a little color in the reflections and mountains.  I haven't done a poured painting for about a year and today I started 3 of them.  I like the way that poured paintings have a cohesiveness of color and a glow that is usually not achieved with traditional watercolor painting techniques.

Before the final touches, I used only cobalt blue, alizarin crimson and cad. yellow in the pours.  I love the way the colors mingle and create interesting color mixtures.

  1. Oh I really like this. The colors are so luscious and no hard edges. Love mountains too and they are poured as well? Can't wait to see the next ones.
