Relief Abstract

Again, I began with crumpling the paper, my version of ‘action painting’ (see Does This Count?).  I planned to pour ink on the not-quite-dry paper and looked forward to watching it diffuse along the disrupted grain of the paper.  Alas, the red ink I poured onto the paper just sat there, with minimal diffusion.

I like the cool colors surrounding the red and yellow blotches. It lends a balance to the composition.

In real life, today’s watercolor puckers somewhat, but even in its flat, two dimensional state, it seems like a relief map of the countryside.
