New Colorful Abstract Process

This new abstract genre is full of layers and layers of mixed media. I use watercolor, acrylic, china markers, oil pastels, Crayola II sticks, regular No. 2 pencil, colored watercolor pencils and gesso. All this is layered onto D’Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper.

The beginning is always easy, it’s the middle that gets me. Right there in mid process, I wonder what in the world I am doing, why in the world I thought it would turn out. And then I just keep going.

The funny thing is that in the end, you can not even see the beginning layers. But I know they’re there.

The end result is my new love.
