Hillside Dancers

“Hillside Dancers”
5 x 7 watercolor on paper

As spring approaches, the rain makes the colors all run together, wildly coursing down the hillside.
Thalo and gamboge, sap green and ochres … all rushing headlong in a vernal frenzy.

    Wonderfully loose! This would make a great card.

    Karen, what wild and fun color. Tastefully done (that color could easily have been garish, too intense). And your brush strokes are a lesson in good brush technique for those who will read them. I’m talking, of course, about putting it down and letting it be. Works so well, so often, in watercolor and other mediums too! (I know you know this–but it may be helpful to others to mention it, nevertheless.)

    Splish, splosh, what fun. And it turned out interestng with the fine lines defining the tree’s structure. Springtime! Wow! Here we have a very very hot week of late summer. They say 34 but it feels like 40 degrees.

    Great title for this piece. It really fits. Love the loose, free feel. Wonderful blend of colors too. Nice job, as always, Karen.
