Layers

I continue the exploration of merging earth tones (particularly quinacridone nickel) with blues and purples in today’s watercolor.

With subsequent layers of glazes, and some lifting of pigments, I created a piece that is layered across the two dimensions of the paper, as well as in the third dimension. The third dimension is built up with microscopically thin layers of pigment. Its overall effect is add richness to the color of the composition.
