watercolor | untitled no. 12

Slight blurring of edges and watermarks sometimes occur, regardless of how long I wait to apply subsequent layers.
The culprit?  Either humidity or the paint property itself as certain colors have a tendency to stain or bleed.  I painted #12 on a muggy day, so the probable cause is humidity.  Nevertheless, I am at peace with the painting.

Martha,
Indeed it turned out to be. Each time I look at the painting, I am more at peace with it.

Ronda,
A trip to the beach is a wonderful way to get inspired.

Barbie,
Thanks. I have been missing the Caribbean Sea lately; in my paintings, it's evident where my head is sometimes!
