While waiting for the glazing on the water lilies to dry, I am still playing with abstracts in the Aquabee sketchbook.

First, black and white in the sketchbook.

Then adding color and texture with the graphitint and inktense pencils (water soluable).

Using this as a guide, I choose the fluid acrylics and paint it on watercolor paper, making changes as it feels right.

And what do I get?

Something turned on it's side and changed too much?  That separation from muted on the left to more distinct black lines and colors on the right will have to be fixed.  I do like the rusty bits with burnt sienna and turquoise and drizzles.  

This one may have to stew a bit...

Thanks, Lorraine, Jennifer Rose and Elizabeth. Elizabeth, nothing silly about that - we all have our preferences when looking at art otherwise we'd all want paintings of Elvis on velvet! haha
