"I feel as though I haven't seen an object until I actually start painting it" -Janet Fish
Step 2: Painting in progress
Watercolor painting on 300lb paper

I placed the yellow arrows by some of the areas of the background, where the mineral paint(Sodalite) and Indanthrone Blue paint....repelled each other. It might have worked had I added a 3rd color or had more value changes in the blue.
*I will come back to this background later in the painting.....
Continuing to move around the painting, adding more glazes of color and slowly developing value contrasts as needed.
