Day 20 of the 30 in 30

I really like how this turned out. Can you guess which medium I used to create this image? That's right, watercolors! Yeah, I'm not that shocking. It does look like pastels to me (even more so in the original). So weird how that happened! This is just ink and watercolor. All of the white is the paper underneath and not added color.  

The pastelish result was partly  because I painted dark colors on the paper and tremoved color in certain areas to enhance the light. It was kind of an accidental painting, because I created this image based on where the water took away the color rather than planning. I should try this water technique in a purposeful manner. In any case this was fun! 

You may have noticed that I've caught up! I'm actually ahead a day on these challenges. I wanted to be able to post on social media the day the image was done rather than waiting a day to post. 

This paintings is for two challenges: #30paintingsin30days and #kidlitart28  Leslie's site for the 30 in 30: https://www.saetastudio.com/february-30-in-30-blog  This image is 2.5"x3.5" colored with Daniel Smith watercolors, inked with a pentel brush pen on Arches Watercolor Paper.
