Watercolour Abstracts ? 2013-12-05 The Spirit of One

2013-12-05 The Spirit of One   10-1/4" x 13-1/4" painted area, three hours

I consider this one to be much better, yet I can still do better . . .
Can you see the improvement ?
I find my brushwork, including large washes, and thinking while painting are improving greatly by doing these abstracts.

This was done in one three hour session, on December 5th, totaling less than three hours.  There are still some real problems, such as miss counting, but I've used twelves both laterally and longitudinally, although I've doubled the longitudinal marks to 24, and I am pleased with where this is heading. This time, I just started out by laying in the marks to build up the two tori, still working back to front.

As well, I can practice on the place mats at the Friday Community Dinner at Wellington Square United Church, as I did last Friday, below.
