Lacy Organisms

Whew!  This was hard to name.  But the designs in black really do look like some sort of lacy organism that might be found in the oceans depths.  I started with red watercolor onto which I sprinkled salt.  Then I added some yellow watercolor and let things swirl around a bit.  I added india ink and since it wasn’t moving much I used the end of my paintbrush to create all the fine curved lines.

  1. You couldn’t have named this painting any better. Spot on. When I looked at it without reading your thoughts, my impression was that it depicts a place somewhere deep and unreachable, this lacy feeling gives softness to it. Very nice.
