Making Wednesday: Watercolor Lichen Pair

Another watercolor pair created the same way as last week's set of 2, the painting subject some lichen I had collected on one of our camping trips. I found the outlines of the delicate plant matter challenging to decipher, quite a bit of time was spent simplifying the intricate puzzle of tiny branches. More hours were devoted to color exploration, a few combinations were not what I had envisioned but perseverance ruled the day. I like the blue. Painting size 4.5" x 4.5".
