The warm ups continue in watercolors. The format is still about doing 4 - 6 quick studies sized about 6 x 6 inches on paper using graphite, gesso, a limited palette and each must have a boat and wave motif. The other day I did take a turn and played with heart shapes (see my recent post Messing with Hearts on Friday, February 12th) in acrylic using the same size range and a limited palette too. The heart shape is as fun a shape as the wave is to play with. And playing is a great way for me to warm up for the bigger work to come.
