February heART #4

For my 4th heART in February, I started using blue and purple watercolor paints creating a very wet heart and background. I removed some of the pigment from the center of the heart and allowed the piece to dry. Then I played with yellows and oranges – contrasting, complimentary colors. I moved the paint around with compressed air in the process…layer upon layer. The end effect was an erupting heart.

This piece is entitled: Erupting Heart

Medium: Watercolor on 140 lb. cold press paper. 6 x 4 inches. Scanned and then digitally framed.
