Yesterday I had an idea buzzing around in my head to paint an abstract watercolour in a minimalist style. First of all I decided on a colour scheme and played with my watercolour sample swatches until I came up with the right colour combination.
I worked spontaneously without any reference photos but just had a picture in my mind of a landscape skyline. I dabbed on colours, dripped and splattered until I was happy with the result. Then I added a few scribbles with a very fine tipped pen.
Finally to give a little more interest I added some threads.
I was happy with the outcome. For me it suggests a landscape. What do you think? Does it work for you?
