22/100- 11x14 ohhhhh big work is too fun

I was feeling the abstract expressionist spirit with this one. I started with wet paint on a dry surface. Here I am using one of my Trekell watercolor panels. I really love the Arches paper that is on these surfaces. This is an intuitive painting, meaning I am not working from a photo but rather finding my way into the landscape as I go, seeing the hills and the cliffs emerge as I make marks on the paper. Making decisions as I go means taking a step back, letting thoughts and feelings percolate and also taking chances. I splatter paint when I feel like it, I move the brush in unexpected ways and I leave white spaces.
