More Experimental Watercolour Techniques

I recently mentioned a book by Nita Engle that I’m studying at the moment.  It is a more experimental approach to watercolour.  This image uses one of the techniques she has in the book.  For this image I cut some matte board with a razor blade to create a semi abstract pine tree shape.  I then printed it randomly on the paper and used my spray bottle to encourage the top of the trees to bleed upwards.  I used primarily thalo turquoise and quinacridone rose.  I did it over a couple of days and after the second day the image just came alive.  Totally out of my comfort zone but extremely enjoyable.
