The other day we were at a lake, sitting in the shade and drinking beer and I was watching the water randomly moving and reflecting light. It was quite a meditative moment in which I realized that the water color is not blue or green but strangely brownish with blue, white and even black. Quite beautiful. Inspired by that, I made this watercolor page in my journal.
An IG friend said it looks like donuts and after looking longer I thought it’s a bit like cinnamon rolls 🙂
Here is a detailed shot. I used Daniel Smith Primatek and Schmincke watercolors. It’s such a joy to see them granulate and flow, especially the gold and sepia brown. Just look at that! I am in love with watercolors.
