Day Six : #30x30DirectWatercolor2019 : The Marathon Continues

June 6, 2019

This one isn’t my favorite. Though it does have some nice areas.

Each time, I look at the work before and see if I can push it a little bit. Eventually, I push something too far. I think this is maybe enough with the blacks.

I think I’m using Neutral Tint mixed with a Lamp Black. Can’t be sure what was in the mix, as, I have different blacks – but all the mixing cups look the same after a while :) Probably should have labeled them.

But you can’t read black marker on cups of black paint :)

This is the nature of a series of work right? Set some parameters and start producing work quickly – staying (mostly) within the guidelines, but testing out variations. Each time they will be versions of the theme. You won’t always like every single one.

Sometimes though, the ones you don’t like at first, end up being favorites later. Have you ever have that happen with an album? The song I always skip ends up being the only one I play a year later.

    This has to be my favourite Marc, it has great depth and strangely enough I can even tell you where it is! Lol 😂 it is So like a landscape of a place I know and love!
    All of your ‘5’ have been interesting and I’ve enjoyed ‘reading them’ in different ways but this is a clear winner to me!

    I think it is cool. I would love to see something similar in outlandishly bright colors!
