Diving Divas#1
24"x18"

I finished this painting using watercolor acrylic. As many of you know, this risky (aaaagh) medium enables prolific use of the water bottle without having the color you just put down run. The only drawback is the speed with which you have to move to get the color right lest the paper dry. Very tricky!! I bang around in my small studio space tilting the paper this way and that while the air turns blue from my slightly inventive language. But all's well that ends well after a bit of tedious clean up. Oh, and the fun thing about this composition is that you can actually, turn the paper any which way and it works. So if you like another angle - feel free!!
