Today in the Studio

This piece was made from a portion
of a rough draft for another larger piece
that I did a while back. The writing was
black sumi ink on Arches Text Wove paper.
I also had some of these odd-shaped little
mats that I'd been hoping to use for something.
I put one down on the rough draft and moved
it around until I found an interesting section.
Then I used some Dr. Martin's Radiant Watercolors
to color in the negative spaces. Once mounted to
the mat, I added some gold dots with my hot foil pen.
I LOVE DOTS! :-)
