Fire With Water(colors)

One Friday evening I was so fed up with seeing white and grey all week. In Finland all the public places, offices, most homes (excluding mine!) are white or pale grey.  And now when the colour starts to fade from the nature too, it’s just too much, or should I say little, for me!

I needed this – to play with colors:

I was not interested in the composition or shapes this time, I yearned for color and spent hours mixing water colors. Then I added small details with pens and color pencils.

Fire with Watercolors, detailed view

The end result reminds me of wood that is burning in the fireplace! Using water colors can be a really fun way to set the colors on fire!
