Deer In The Mist

"This is really special PJ.  In all three, what is 'fast'?  Those tree branches and foliage don't look fast to me, nor do they look sponged!   Brilliant work as ever."

Thank you Marilyn for the comments on my 3 "fast"watercolors. I guess I call them fast because I have to work fast on them,all the effects need to be achieved before everything dries.With this technique I need to have everything ready before I start,colors selected and mixed etc..water container and spray bottle filled(don't want to loose precious minutes running to the kitchen for water!LOL)The foliage and  branches start out as beads of clear water from my old Windex bottle.Using a flat brush loaded with paint I paint the tree trunks,then tilt the paper up & to the lift and right and those branches and leaves will almost paint themselves!!The mist is just a rolled up paper towel to dab up some(but not too much)wet paint.this is why it's important to work fast before the water sinks into and dries on the paper.All 3 paintings I did between 15 & 25 minutes.....Take care,P.J.

Thank you for the beautiful comment on Aran Sweater Marilyn. I did this one form a photo I took a few years ago of my sister who was visiting us from down East. It's walking on a nearby beach on a cold windy October day when she stopped to tie her hair up. I thought it made a good composition,but the challenge for me was the sweater to bring out the softness and whiteness,I have to confess i did not get it right the first time,but was happy with the second effort.So yes always room for improvement  I guess.   Take care,P.J.
