Every summer I tend to gravitate to working with watercolours and I wonder if it's because it's a much lighter and airier (if that's a word) medium. I know I enjoy switching back and forth between large and small works, and also between canvas and paper, but I think I also like the idea of something physically lighter. It is easier to transport and travel with and I like the fact that the white of the paper acts as highlights. It challenges me in a different way and forces me to experiment with new ideas and ways of working when I return to acrylics. I often wonder if there is some way I can bring this fluid method of working to the canvas. Perhaps in fall it will be time to play with new acrylic media once again.
