We never know why we hit a slump and we never know why they end. I woke up yesterday with an intense desire to paint again. All I can say is Yippee! I started working on a couple of small watercolors and I finished (I think its finished…hmmmmm?) one today. This little guy was inspired by several things. First, I just recently finished a book by Edward Betts that included a chapter on painting without a brush. This painting is done entirely without the use of a brush. Second I have been thinking about the work that Chris and Leslie have been doing, especially Leslie’s post of October 3, 2010. She did a painting using multiple shades of gray and black.  Anyway here it is…I used payne’s gray, neutral tint, charcoal gray and Dr Martin’s Hydrus white and black.

Study in Gray, Black and White #1

Now that it is finally raining in Indiana I guess you could say I’m just splashing around.
