March 11, 2010 - Day 213

Ink and watercolor on 140lb Acquerello Portofino hot press watercolor paper

This is another free hand ink and wash painting. I like the looks of the paintings when I just let the ink flow where it will and then bring out the hidden landscape with watercolor washes. I would like to achieve the same result with real places but when I try to create a specific place I get too detail orientated and lose the flow. That is what happened with yesterday's painting.
