Reflections


This was an interesting new experiment and fun to do, and I love how it turned out. I took an old piece of abstract acrylic painting on watercolor paper, and added pastel over it, including some iridescent pastels, while thinking of pond reflections. I did three of these last night in related but slightly different palettes, so I'll be posting the next two soon.

This is gorgeous, dude! You're good, but for crying out loud! Did you really mean for that to happen or did you inhale some of that iridescence?

Great colors, and very interesting how the texture of the acrylics on watercolor paper affected the texture of the pastels. Experiments that work out this well are a really good thing! I'll be looking forward to the others.

fantastic! And I love how experimentation can produce these unexpected and wonderful results. We need to get out of our habits sometimes.
