Watercolor is my joy. To me, it is pure magic!
The unexpected surprises and luminescent beauty are absolutely enchanting.
To take advantage of the magical qualities of watercolor you need to be prepared to give up quite a bit of control. That’s one of the things that I love about it. I love the unpredictability of it. I love the unexpected surprises. I love that I never quite know what is about to happen each and every time I paint.
It is a cooperative dance between me and the paints. I lay some paint down and see how it responds. And then I feel my way into my next move, which color to add, which special technique to use. Once again I step back and see what happens before I know what my next step will be. It feels like alchemy, superbly magical and mystical. And, oh how my heart loves anything magical and mystical!
