This 18th heART piece was made using mostly green watercolor paint. I first laid down water with no color for the eye and the border; then I dropped in the pigment. As this piece had a chance to dry, I added feathery, leaf lines. The green and blue heart evolved as I detailed the feathery leaves. The orange-red accent color were painted last to give this piece depth and interest.
This piece is entitled: Contemplative HeART
Medium: Watercolor on 140 lb. cold press paper. 6 x 4 inches. Scanned and then digitally framed.
