"Painting With Ice Cubes"

The usual gouache underpainting was not a good approach on this day and after the sun came up the temps dropped further. The top of the pond had ice and even the dribbles from my rinse container froze instantly.


  1. Hey Pastelfish,

    Even your photo of the set up is awesome.
    Beautiful sun that day.


  2. Beautiful spontaneous watercolors! And I always enjoy seeing something up on the easel.

  3. Thanks DD, thanks Ben. Yeah, me too, I love watching people work, process of their thinking. It's an intimate link to their brain in the creative realm, though this one didn't go far. The melted gouache was a totally different composition, the block in rearranged.
