Last Sunday I played with watercolors by wetting the surface and then dabbing in colors with a wet watercolor brush to see what happens as the colors bleed, spread, pool, and mix with each other. A dear friend calls this style of painting “Happenings” because you never know what’s going to happen.
Image #1 shows the mandala itself (yellow, greens, and warm oranges) with the addition of dry watercolors around the background. Adding the water turned the background into a rich deep purple. It really makes the mandala shine. Have yet to receive any insight about this one. It will probably come as I work on it in Day 2.
