Concern

My worry and concern these days is not only for the country but for circumstances closer to home. I used my sketch book today to try gathering my feelings.  Today’s painting began as a gestural study.

Watercolor: Abstract - Concern

Concern
16″x12″ 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Block

I began with the lightest yellows and drew an outline from my sketchbook. I surrounded it, first with Peacock blue, a saturated pigment, then with the darker Prussian blue.  I painted the focal point of the figure a bright red and outlined it with black.

I feel much better than I did when I painted yesterday’s painting. Maybe the trick is to keep emote locally, paint globally.
