Peaceful zen pond watercolor

rockringpondtealwpI painted this little study quickly for a client who had a lovely little pond in her backyard. I’ve never been into the ‘zen’ lifestyle, but the client was, very much so, and this little environment she designed was indeed charming and peaceful. I’m usually pretty tightly controlled with my illustration work, so it was nice to experiment with watercolors this way, using some quick strokes and then some slower, rounder organic blobs, letting the color bleed into accidental textures.

I’ll make it available as a notecard on my Store soon.
