Three experiments with watercolours on watercolour paper. The pure coloured paint was added in thin transparent layers allowing each to dry in the first two, while the third was worked on slightly damp paper, to build up interesting marks, textures and colour combinations. It always amazes me how one medium can be used to create so many different effects.

I have been working in my spiritual journal a lot over the last few months and while doing so I became very inspired to create my own deck of oracle cards based on the five elements. They are going to be painted intuitively in watercolour, gouache and ink with five suits and five cards within each suit. I have no idea what the pictures will be for them; I want them to grow organically as I work, starting with laying down backgrounds for each suit. First we have the earth backgrounds:
Three primary colour experiments; one with all three primary colours using soft blending (acrylic on paper), one blending intuitive shapes in two primary colours (acrylic on canvas) and one using transparent layers of the primary colours built up and blended (watercolour and masking fluid on paper). The blue/green/yellow one is my favourite; I see a dog/wolf head in it. Which one do you like best and what do you see?
