I am fascinated by watercolor, a technique that requires great skill and patience to deal with its unpredictability and fluidity. Wet work has an impressive brightness and lightness, but this glow is too often compromised in the drying process. To offset this loss, I photographs the watercolor production process, to capture the magic luminosity from different angles. This produces a collection of images that are uploaded to a digital palette to make use in my collages.
