This Is Why I LOVE Watercolor ... and Dressage, for that Matter ...

I was here last night.

I've been blocking in the shadows on the iris wet-in-wet, with quin. pink and cobalt blue.

I truly love the spontaneity and fluidity and grace of  a w/w application.
And a horse ridden well, in harmony with the rider, is equally beautiful - the elegance, grace and power ...

Back to the painting. If I can maintain this ease and looseness, I'm in heaven. I thought I would lift some of the background to create the appearance of leaves. And I will do some color swatches to get just the right color for the iris.
As ever and always, please be welcome to leave any comments!
