January Ice Art

What do you do when the temps drop below,
WAY below freezing?
Make icy watercolor art ... OUTSIDE!

Step 1---Dress warmly and pack your

water, brushes, and paints outside.

Step 2---QUICKLY do a watery wash

(while the paper is elevated at an angle...)

Step 3---Drop vibrant color (I use a triad of

pthalo blue red shade and violet and turquoise blue)

Step 4---Watch the wonder of ice crystals
form in the color and spread out.

Step 5---Let dry and get inside to warm up!

This art was done while
it was 14 degrees inside
my studio.
Happy January painting!
