Firefly-- swimmer watercolor in progress




The watercolor has been worked and reworked for days and days.  Yesterday-- I finally wetted the entire paper--- drenching it in Prussian Blue and Trasnparent Yellow.  I added a touch of Quin Burnt Orange.. and a little Opera.

I could not "babysit" the overall glaze-- but left it in the studio to dry on its own.

Today-- I spend a huge amount of time developing and painting in the jewel like dazzles of color in small passages.
