Day 15 and 18 of 30×30 Watercolor

This one started out looking like a loaf of bread overlooking the ocean.

I walked away from it after sharing it with my Aunt with my “meh” analysis.

She suggested I deepen the shadows as a starting point to make it into something else. And she thought it had a Daliesque feeling in need of an idiosyncratic foreground object or character. Her suggestion was a snowman.

Deepening the color of the ocean and the shadow on the “loaf” made the page more substantial, but I’ve never had great lucky painting something white over color. Nothing quite like a hooded figure to keep a person wondering.

I think I might be the hooded figure…waiting and watching for something.
