August 15, 2008 Touch of Autumn

10.5 x 13.5 pastel and watercolor on board $200.
A hint of Autumn can now be seen in the river.....everything is changing.
Today I accidentally played with a new surface. After working on my board yesterday I decided I really didn't like the batch of boards I had just made. Too much gesso. So right before leaving the house this morning I added some more marble dust in a clear binder and coated the board. Well due to a combination of things (the damp morning and my impatience) I began working a a somewhat wet board. Bottom line the watercolor mixed with the gel and marble dust a left defined strokes of color. Interesting.
