Playing with abstracts in watercolour is very time consuming but lots of fun as there is no fixed result in mind. I often find bits of other media to add bringing it to a finished work. This time I used some silver leaf (not real silver), that I purchased whilst in Italy last year and a silver web spray. To ensure its bright longevity I spray a mat spray varnish over those areas.
My solo show where I released my first abstracts finishes this weekend but the fabulous feed back (and sales) I have received gives me confidence that abstracts in watercolour are worth the play.
