Abstract Rocks

My Thursday painting buddies and I decided to have some fun doing abstracts. This is what I came up with after wetting the paper and dropping in quinacridone gold, permanent rose, and Winsor blue. I laid some Saran Wrap on the initial wash to texture the paper. When it dried I "found" rocks. I have to say that I have not been very successful with my previous attempts at abstracts, and I was surprised and pleased to watch this one almost paint itself.

Michelle, I love your "Abstract Rocks" - reminds me of gazing into my pond on a summer day! Bett
