"Life Force"

Today I've been working with a different palette--warm reds and orange.  Perhaps I need to see these colors when the landscape is still white and shades of blue shadows....
This composition is lovely and fat with dots of dark paint and the salt makes textures in the first wash....

"Life Force" - stage one

"Life Force"
watercolor and gouache - 4" x 6"

Some judicious straw blowing and a bit of negative space painting gave me this result.  I am liking these little experiments with loosely constructed work....
