TO BREAK THE SPELL, BREAK OUT A MEDIUM, THAT ISN'T YOU.

The first pass was the best--even though I thought it was too busy. My second pass may not be finished? I have a desire to go back in once it's dry and add details with pastel pencil. The exercise was simply to get me doing something--anything--with paint. I like to splash around with water. (Odd that I'm Capricon; you'd think I was Pisces).
Watercolor always comes to mind because I like playing color wet into wet. Neither painting took a lot of time. I have no patience for drying. Both were my spontaneous reaction to a photo I clipped out of my most favorite
magazine: Tauck Tours. I have no idea where this place is in Europe, but the black blob on the right looks like a charming cafe that Ellis and I would adore. Walking the stairs down to the sea? I don't know?
