Sable round brushes, colours and paper:
n.4 Burnt Umber (unused)
n.7 Phthalo Turquoise (unused)
n.3 Rhodonite Genuine
Watercolour paper NOT 280gsm 38 x 28cm

additional exercise using all materials above:
this was done with actual guidance for choosing colours, just the three colours
blending and no area other than the white without some Rhodonite Genuine
absolutely gorgeous blue, like deep Lapis Lazuli, comes from mixing Phthalo Turquoise and Rhodonite Genuine, looks like Twilight to me


n.4 God’s loving light shines out through all His guides
but there is no yellow at all
so this may have to be left white
negative space becoming positive
outlined by very pale Burnt Umber perhaps
muddy skies
reminds me of Egon Shiele’s Autumn Sun paintings where the sky looks like crumpled paper
Burnt Umber – shadows, duplicating, three dimensional
overall this is light and shadow
reminds me of God being everywhere, like the white of the paper, but where it is painted on it is more difficult to see; here making an effort to keep the light/white visible, perhaps
Phthalo Turquoise, the colour of the sea
n.7 work diligently, appearances deceiving
God moved the mountains
God filled the seas
perhaps like where the mountains are reflected on water with the doubling and the colour brown of Burnt Umber
Rhodonite Genuine perhaps adding a blush to the sky
these look to me like very pale colours here
n.3 respect God, mirroring, looking back at
all things speak for God upon this planet Earth perhaps indicating the light shines out from where it is painted too
because everything is in the image of God
hence the shining light can be in Rhodonite and Phthalo Turquoise also
to me this feels like all triangles’ish perhaps like interlocking spaces
paddy fields, agricultural land, or outlined spaces filled in with colours
except Planet Earth brings in a round shape, in Rhodonite perhaps
pink planets? Mars or Venus?
disbelieving Phthalo Turquoise blue planet Earth
turning into
artful beauty Rhodonite Genuine pink planet Earth
with God’s grace
or not
letting the brush choose
no planets or circles
keeping the triangles but some filled with Rhodonite Genuine like a patchwork effect
or not
some pale Rhodonite reflections everywhere perhaps
blended in with the other two colours perhaps
some rounding to hint at the underlying round shape of the planet like a rounded horizon line perhaps
