Day 79 at Home: Stringing together the Day

Yesterday morning started with a Sketching Play/Lab session where we played with water and color. I painted these little pieces during the session.

And then, because it’s so much fun to play like color, I kept going and did this next one as a part of the 30x30DirectWatercolor Challenge.

I still couldn’t stop so I decided to do a monoprint with watercolor, an “Indirect Watercolor“, perhaps? I grabbed a plastic sheet I use as a backing board and painted with thick watercolor onto it and transferred with the back of a spoon onto a wet watercolor sheet. If you do this super quickly, it works decently.

It was fun. Just what I needed. Some days I can sink into and think about difficult stuff. Some days, I just need to play.
