An Impromptu Dance with Watercolor

"Sunlight on the Sidewalk"
Original Watercolor by Michele Cooper
Size:10x9. Sold

The sunlight dancing on the colors of the tulips by my sidewalk caught my eye.
I was interrupted from painting the "last five strokes" so I put this on the easel and glanced at it from time to time. Click here to see the beginning of this piece.

Every once in a while, I engaged in a light flirtation with the negative shapes, a stroke here, a stroke there. It was an impromptu dance with watercolor until I stopped today. I think it's done now.
"A painting is never finished. It simply stops in interesting places." It's a bit like dancing, isn't it? We're never really finished dancing, either.
