A larger painting for today--mist rising off the water in the early morning sun. This watercolor is painted on heavyweight plate bristol paper. The paper is hard and very smooth, which keeps the paint floating on the surface. Washes retain beautiful clarity, but are easily lifted by successive brushstrokes. It's always a dance, partly in and partly out of control, which is what I love about it. Maybe what it really teaches me is that "control" is just an illusion, in life as well as painting.
