Disks and Lines

I painted the background of today’s watercolor first (sans disks), without and idea of how the composition would develop. Since I am working with inked lines lately, I noted several color boundaries that cried out for defining lines. I began with the border of the yellow and worked outward. Some of the lines echoed the arrow shape, but I angled the top set of lines in opposition to the outline of the arrow. The circle at the bottom left counterbalanced those lines. The other two disks suggest a beginning and end of the lines of force, or the trajectory of the yellow arrow.
