It is a rainy Thursday morning. I hope that the colors in this painting will soften the gloom of the day. The pastel appearance of this painting is created through the use of my transparent paints being mixed with opaque white. I think of myself as a painter first and a transparent watercolorist as a matter of category or medium. I like the appearance of transparent watercolor but occasionally I enjoy not worrying about painting around the objects in the paintings. I also find myself returning to a theme that I like- water and the circular shape of the moon or sun, each helping create some type of mood in the piece. I hope that you have a worry free day.
