Watercolors: A new aesthetic

Yesterday in class we used watercolors to react to a poem.  I had so much fun using watercolors that I decided to go out and buy some so I could use them for my final project in the class.

So here is my final project:


It's very different from my acrylic paintings, which is neat.  I think I would still paint acrylic paintings the same as I usually do, but watercolors do fun things.  I used water-based ink pen and acrylic, so I was able to have hard lines and some fun blurring and whatnot.

This is based on a doodle I drew while listening to the lecture on the first day: WHAT IS ART THERAPY.  So I'm using this as my class reaction piece, because I think it describes how I felt the whole class, and using a new medium is symbolic, too.

Whew I am too tired to write more, I have been getting too little sleep!
