Blue Thunder

Today I was just in the mood to play with colour so I chose to use French ultramarine blue and Antwerp blue.

I mixed up pools of each colour and then poured them over wet watercolour paper and rolled them around allowing the paint to mix on its own.

As the shine started to leave the paper a sprinkled salt into the paint and set it aside to dry.

Once the background was dry I went in and drew a galloping horse and inked it in to complete the painting.

Thank you to returning collector Mrs. Christine Connelly on her selection of this original 5" x 7” mixed media painting for her home.
