I think I broke out of my ‘S’ habit. In previous abstract watercolors (Untitled 101916, Caldron) I seemed to always start with a backward ‘S’ shape. I did more high frequency brush strokes in earth tones. I carefully painted in between the indiscriminately-painted yellows. Those reds and purples pulled the amorphous yellows together like a purse seine
I like this study very much. The central area, clear of foreground designs, has potential for additional visual elements. Perhaps the absence of design makes it the center of gravity for this composition. I feel I am getting closer to creating increasingly interesting studies.
