A few watercolor paintings that I've done a while back. I'm showing them now because I just recently found them. It influences me to start using watercolor paintings again. I have forgotten how fun they were.

Title: The Doctor is InSANE (VIEW)

Title: Split_ (VIEW)

Title: untitled - collaboration (VIEW)

^ Now that one has an interesting history.

My friends and I were in watercoloring class together. We started added randon watercolor paints onto the table we were working on. My professor suggested that we place a sheet of paper on top of the paints and lift it up. And that's (above) what it turned out to be. Pretty neat, eh? What I see is a very calm lake, with coral and such ... and well, it seemed interesting to me.

Heya!

Wow, I am really impressed by these! I personally find watercolour a very difficult medium to work in but you've done very well. I particularly like the second one - the idea of just the eyes with the paint splattered across like that looks great! The first one is suitably creepy as well :D

The final one does look like a lake, but when I first saw it what I thought was tiger fur, as it does look like it has that sort of pattern and texture!

Good work!

Thank you for your comments FG dear. I like hearing people's perpective on the last one. I'm eagerly wanting to know what everyone else sees.

Wow, theyre all good! I like the semi-abstract-ness of the first one! You put all the basic info in there to tell that its a doctor, but nothing extra or unnecessary!

As for the last one ... I also see a lake! A winter/spring lake sorta, and its raining too! It looks like reflections in the water below!

Thank you! I plan to enter the Doctor painting in an upcoming Art Show. I'm a little nervous since it's my first time, but I have friends that shared their experience with me. So, not all that nervous. But it's comments like yours that make be become enthusiastic.

Wow... amazing. I esp. love the second one! The different colored eyes, and the splashes that seem to fit perfectly wherever they are... it's amazing. <3
