This is a fast and loose composition done in watercolor and ink on paper. I start out with a watercolor background and add inks straight from the dropper while the paint is still wet, encouraging pools to form and colors to mix. In this painting I brushed out the middle after some ink had been added, creating that sort of grey zone in the middle.
I really love those splotches of red and yellow, like flames dancing across a surface. Some of the thin black lines I could maybe do without. I think the brushed out part in the middle actually works in this composition, but I’m not sure about the pink and black spots. The blue and pink in the top of the painting are excellent, and offer a nice relief from the fiery reds, yellows, and blacks.
