watercolor – for vala

Just sharing a little watercolor sketch I posted on Spirit Train Chronicles a few days ago…

It began as a simple idea – to loosen up my painting muscles, and say a little thank you to a friend who’s been helping me lately. (The STC post explains the process more.)

By the time I cleaned the brushes, I realized it held several layers of meaning.

I really love this medium. Not sure if I could ever commit to anything as structured as a portrait with it, but it sure is liberating to splash around and let magical water have its way with color.
