Painting a palmy landscape from my imagination, I created a scene in mixed media using watercolors, pastels and gesso on 140 lb. cold pressed paper. I digitally added a yellow reflection to the water and bumped up the color. My original artwork is much softer.
This is the version I like the best. Here are the original and a second version, cooler version. Creating this was fun and involved several layers. I like working like this because there are no rules, no reference photos, just the color on the paper, and the results are always surprising.
