slope

slope1212This is my newest watercolor, created with a few layers of dioxazine purple. First I established the horizon line and dripped on some wet, wet purple that I let drip down however it decided to drip, holding the paper up at an angle to make sure it at least all went in the same direction. When it was still wet, I charged in more purple from the top. When it was still just slightly wet, I added in the darker drips and the sky. That was it. I am thinking it needs a teeny, tiny building up on the right, but haven’t totally decided to put one in. Really, I like it the way it is. It says land to me, and slope and rock wall, and even water. I love the lines and texture, and that it is slightly realistic, very abstract, and totally monochromatic.
