Caldera in the Clouds


This painting started out as a Splashing Ink or PoMo on single shuen rice paper. I took several layers of paper and taped them to a board, then sprayed the paper and added color. I let it dry and this is the first layer. The clouds were an experiment using white gouache, the color on the paper from the initial pouring of color along with touches of 3 or 4 different blues - and lots of water.
