Platte, watercolor, 9×12″, 2018, by Jean Krueger copyrighted with all rights reserved
I was hiking and found a rock that impressed me . It looked like a landscape. I’ve started a series of landscape paintings based upon the colors, shapes and contours I see in the rock. I am doing this as an exercise to paint quickly without too much analysis, letting the paint flow and granulate in watery washes. I’m limiting my pallet to no more than 5 colors. I tilt and turn the painting to direct the water’s flow. I plan to create a least landscapes from the same rock.
This is a simple concept but an effective way for me explore the watercolor media.
