Homage to Mondrian



Here is another watercolor I did recently. I was playing with abstraction. I love the way that watercolor gives interesting and unexpected results, like when areas of paint bleed into each other. I used a complimentary color scheme, and tried to have a unity of shape.

One difference of watercolor from oil, is that the white areas have to be planned in advance. It can be a little tricky. If you paint on the area, the white is gone, and can’t be brought back.

I am really enjoying your watercolors this year! This one has such nice colors. Very cool technique – colors bleeding into each other.
