So let's get started with my interpretation. Pardon this night time photo from my studio, but I wanted you to see the watercolor base I created on my canvas. I puddled color, then spritzed it to move it around and eliminate any hard edges. I plopped and flecked as I went, letting some areas dribble down and also heat setting between colors. I used a mix of purples and browns. I could literally do this all day!
Then I got really excited and took no more photos until the after. Ha, sorry! But a lot of closeups should explain... I embossed in white a text stamp randomly, not pressing the stamp fully and brushing off any powder where a "hard line" formed - these are my highlights. I also stamped a script stamp in lavender ink to create my lowlights, as well as the black flecks.
