The Columbine watercolor is complete. I tried doing a vignette for the first time where you have the composition touch three sides of the piece, don’t have a definite border, and incorporate the beauty of the paper. The center of focus is off-center and the composition reads left to right, up and down, and connects on three sides.

Glass Beach in Fort Bragg – Day 6 of the #WaterColorMonth2018 Challenge

Okay, I admit it, I went and found an unfinished painting and added the foreground to be able to finish another painting for day 6. I played around in the foreground with Daniel Smith’s Metallic Watercolor¬† in Pale gold to create the effect of sparking glass on the beach.
