"Late Night Playtime..."


My watercolor paint palette is one big juicy mess...
and
it needs to be cleaned up badly...really badly.
But...alas...
my heart wasn't in it last night...so instead...
I dabbled and doodled
with muddy smeary colors on insanely rough paper
while watching the full 3 hours of the "dramatic" Bachelor Finale
on television...Geesch!
I think I have lost my ever lovin' mind!
I am cleaning my palette
today.

The original is beautiful but the inversion is stunning!!

Now if you clean your palette you won't be able to find anything. lol I should clean mine also especially after being out in the 'field' with it.

I realize just how amazingly detailed your pieces are, but there is such a simple elegance about each of them & you are sooooo good with colors, too.

This is so intricate Margaret. I can see you were busy for some time. The colors don't appear muddy on your sketch.
