"Take Another Look", watercolour painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Take Another Look", watercolour painting, 11 x 14"
$225.00 archivally matted, FREE S&H

This is another watercolour I did during my class's venture into abstraction. After making the painting, which had a strong cruciform design, I thought the result was good, but not WOW. So I decided to impose a frame-on-frame compostition on top of the cruciform. I did this by using the theory of 'counter-change', which has a shape that changes from dark against light in one area to light against dark in another. I did this by lifting the paint in areas and painting darker in others. The end result makes you 'take another look', hence the title.

Enjoy!
