Something New

Here are a couple of paintings I just finished up - I think. I always have to live with them for awhile to see how I really feel about them.
The smaller one is a little different for me. This week's classes are going to be working on toned paper, so I thought I would have a finished product to show them, and then I will demonstrate also. I did, more or less, random bands of primary colors, and then did the painting over the colors. The reason (ONE of the reasons) I like watercolor is because of the sparkling white paper, and there is no sparkling white paper in this painting. I could have masked out some white areas before I started with the under painting, but masking looks so . . . masked. Stencil-like.

These where done from some sketches that I posted awhile ago.
