PAINTED LADY



This watercolor/gouache painting is 10.5 x 14 inches. Although it looks like fanciful doodling, I spent a great deal of time thinking about shapes, color, contrast, and relationships. Basically this was an exercise in abstract design. At times, I just put something down and then had to figure out the next step. Next time I will try establishing my big shapes first and then build from there.
