What is is about spring? The new growth, the buds, the flowers, the birds constantly singing? The greening of everything?
It gives me a boost of energy and makes me want to go back to my art room after a short break of sketching, and pick up some greens and violets and yellows and blues...
This small painting was done on Fluid Watercolor Paper (140# cold press), on a 6 x 8 inch block of 15 pages. Nice, but I think I'll work on the rough paper next to help me leave some whites.
Painting with two brushes only: a Silver Black Velvet round #8; and a small hake brush sent to me from a friend/artist in British Columbia who painted some of the most gorgeous landscapes/seascapes with one just like it - he told me it wasn't a magic brush but wanted me to have one anyway, to see if I liked it. I'll never let it go because, although it is not magic in itself, I think a little bit of Mohan is there when I pick it up and try it. He is gone now but never ever forgotten.
