Day #11 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"Tango"
6" x 7"
watercolor on hot press Arches

I feel like a flounderer when I use watercolor.  Painting this photo was interesting as there is a definite transparency on the front critters wings,
but by the time I put my first layer down, it was already too opaque and too late to do another one. I am going with it.
Oh well, learning curve..it has been a long time since I have used this medium.

Check out my 'Daily Paintworks - Gallery' - see sidebar.  
I am selling my art there and Etsy.

Very loose and colorful, Pattie! NIce. It's fun to try a different medium, even when you are trying to perfect another. It all "informs".

I see you've dusted off the butterflies! Beautiful!

Love this Pattie, funny because I have a butterfly ready to post for #12!

Thanks Learning, Sandy and Karen. The more I think about it, this is what it's all about...that experimental part HAS to happen...otherwise it's all just 'happy accidents'.

I think you got a great sense of light in this, and beautiful, bright color that suit the butterflies perfectly!

You are too kind, Claire. Glad to get back to oils for now.
