Finally got my brushes wet after a long time. Summers are always a busy time. Despite the longer days there is somehow never enough time for everything :O
I have been wanting to try out some of Nita Engle’s techniques from her book How to Make a Watercolor Paint Itself. Really amazing book! Would really like to dive into it and play with the techniques.
Here is the first one I tried out today. Lots of fun with sqirting paint and water all over and try to make sense out of it 😀
7″ x 10.5″
Would really appreciate honest critique on compostion etc. Thanks for visiting ~ ~ ~

Srishti, this is a very interesting work with a very interesting style and technique. Sounds fun.
AK! thanks a lot! 😀 It definitely is very interesting!
Love the looseness and wet feeling in the painting. The small dark spot at the bottom is in the middle, so exten another spontaneous spot a bit to the left. It’ll help create more eye movement and add assymetrical balance to the land masses. Hope you’re enjoying the southwest. What a change from the northwest!
Wow! Thanks for the advice on how to fix that Sandy! Will do just that!
Yes, it is a big change down here… But not too huge temperature wise.
We really love it down here!
Amazing! I think I might buy Nita Engle’s book after all!!
