Sharp water dancing

is the title of this painting (acrylics on paper approx 70 x 46cm). I spent a few hours doing some quick acrylic painting on paper and this is one of the works. The inspiration is simply words taken at random from some writing. The colour is very different for me! I'm quite taken with this one, and hope to take it's energy and life into a painting on canvas but sometimes prep work has a certain kind of energy that's hard to repeat. It's a long time since I painted on paper for that reason - preferring to get that first energy onto a more permanent surface.
