Tropical Wash

Sure, Creative Every Day has moved from Water to Earth for October’s theme, but I am still stuck working with water.  I moved from ink to markers for this piece.  I used some of my daughters old markers that are washable.  I wet my surface and began to draw.  The lines blurred and ran beautifully.  I was called away to deal with the real world and when I returned it had dried.  I wet it again and continued adding colors, letting them blend and bleed.  I finished off with a frame of color around the side and let it dry.  To give it a bit more detail I took the markers and outlined some of the shapes.  Once done, it felt very tropical to me.  Coral?  Seaweed?  Any ideas?

      • What a great idea. That idea brought to mind the electricity show they do at the Science Museum in Boston. Cool!
