An exercise to get loose

When I haven't painted in so long, I decided to loosen up with an exercise in watercolor. Taking a full sheet of Arches watercolor paper, I had no plan, just splattered and dabbed paint around, sprayed with water, etc.  After a while I decided to turn some of the blobs of color into flowers.  This is just one corner of the whole painting.  The entire paintings is rather crazy looking, but I like this little corner.

I used a rigger brush to get the narrow wavy lines.  I hadn't used this brush in years, and it was good to play with it again.

Hi, Carolyn! I see - you enjoyed this process :) - those flowers in the right side looks like real and as a ending of the growing flower bouquet! Seems they are grows from water! :) White flowers like clover!
I love it! Very bright, alive and fresh :)))
Have a nice weekend!!! Waiting for your new painting! I know, you are already full of thought about!
