Here are some pages from THE YEAR OF HOURGLASS,  a collection of 54 line drawings. First I make a fast, more or less "automatic" painting in watercolor.  Later I come back and trace lines of the painting onto a sheet of onionskin paper.  The images that show up may be obvious, or they may be hiding, but in any case I'm always surprised.

Example of an obvious image found in watercolor warmup.


Example of image hidden in warmup watercolor, with 1st ink drawing & final image.
