Falling into dark

This waterfall watercolor was a pretty spontaneous work. Accidentally I poured some dirt water over the empty half-sheet and used this “1st wash” for the picture. The beauty of these “accidents” is that I feel able to be really bold with brush and paints, when the sheet seems lost already.

Dieses Aquarell eines Wasserfalls war eine ziemlich spontane Arbeit. Unglücklicherweise war mir schmutziges Wasser über den leeren halben Bogen gelaufen und ich habe beschlossen, diese “Schweinerei” für das Bild zu nutzen. Das Schöne an solchen “Unfällen” ist, dass sie es mir ermöglichen, viel wagemutiger mit Pinsel und Farben zu sein, wenn das Blatt schon verloren scheint.
