Painting loose and messy! #watercolor

It’s amazing how we are influenced by things and they stick with us. I saw this Koosje Koene video back in March of 2014 (courtesy of Inkophile) and it still has an effect on my work! Splashy backgrounds have become my “thing.”

Back when I was taking a watercolor class, I worked so “tight!” I was trying to make things look perfect. Instead they looked stiff. Now I love painting loose and messy.

Here are two other pieces I’ve created recently. Follow me on Instagram to see my latest projects. 🙂
