I thought about doing this piece with a stark white background. I don’t know if it would have worked better. I do like how the piece turned out. I used card stock for this piece. Watercolor paper would have been a better choice. Watercolors work nicer on watercolor paper. The paper doesn’t ball up as easy. I have to use more of a dry brush on the cardstock. I did try a bunch of different designs for the puddle. I am happy with the final choice. I hope you enjoy tonights piece.
