Rescued Blunder

Sometimes mistakes just can’t be modified into successes. That was the case the other day. I tore up the offending ink and watercolor abstract (of dimensions 9×12 inches). I like to avoid waste, so I assembled the scraps on a 12×16 inch piece of watercolor paper. Previously, I glazed the entire surface with Prussian blue and quinacridone burnt orange.

I just tacked the pieces down in this stage of the design. I arrayed them with the idea that the spaces in between would make an interesting maze. Perhaps I shall darken those areas for maximal contrast.
