5th Painting 30×30 Direct Watercolor – Abstract Splatter

“Splatter Landscape”

“Splatter Landscape”. In preparation for my watercolor class with a focus on texture, I created this little 5″x7″ abstract landscape using splatter techniques; splattering wet paint to a very wet surface on the bottom and wet paint on to a dry surface on the top. I used a few “pull” calligraphy strokes to “find” some trees and branches. I also brought out my little diamond-shaped palette knife to scrape back some highlights, and some “sticks” in the foreground. It was just a 20-minute study to watch how the paint moves. A good exercise, me thinks?
