OSWOA - Flowing Colours 2

The temperatures continue to be in the 80F+ (27C+) range with still no rain in sight. It is hard to get motivated to work on a larger painting, so today I felt like playing with colour and not doing anything too serious.

I wet the paper and brushed in the primaries using cobalt blue, alizarin crimson and new gamboge. I allowed the paint to mix together on the paper and let it dry. Then I went in and painted in a few dots of colour to create some interest.

If you would like more information about OSWOA please go to my post on 12 March 2010.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Windsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $30.00 and sold unframed.
