Abstract Landscape

I haven’t done one of these abstracts in awhile.  I find them very meditative to do.  I did this one on Sunday while watching the Oscars.

I started with several layers of watercolor on 140 lb hot press paper:

Next, I outline shapes I see when the paint changes color with a black Micron .01 pen:

It is very meditative to choose which shapes I want to include:

This time, I left some shapes without outlines:

I think it gives the eyes time to rest.  You can choose to see individual shapes or the big picture.

I want to try using an actual photo as a reference for my next one.

Cheers!  🙂
