Two new full size watercolors...wild and free

I love creating the abstract shapes and drawing with pencil on the paper.
The paint is applied in splashes of color for a loose "accidentally on purpose" effect
where each drip and drop adds to the complexity of color and form.

In the koi painting I enjoyed working with the interaction of the viridian green with the cobalt violet. The colbalt violet is a poisonous color, so I have to wash my hands carefully after splashing it around. The two vibrant colors merge into a misty, foamy gray
