Mixing it up

It’s been cold, snowy, and seriously windy for several days. Today, Mother Nature decided to switch things up with mild temperatures and rain. Lots of rain. So much gray calls for splashes of color.

Honestly, I’m not a cold weather fan. And gray skies make me want to curl up under the covers and stay there all day. So I opted to keep things simple.

Abstract flowers in acrylic

I painted a quick abstract of a flower arrangement using acrylics on paper.

Abstract flowers in watercolor

I repeated the same arrangement using watercolor.

Watercolor isn’t something I’ve used very much, so it was interesting to see the similarities and differences between the two mediums. Something else to experiment with more. Maybe tomorrow since there’s more rain in the forecast.
