Arizona Revisited II 6.7.15

Definitely a quantum leap with today’s exercises, which involved creating watercolor monoprints by pressing paper onto wet paint on my white ceramic palette. The effects were both exciting, and not unexpectedly, surprising.

After the paper was removed from the palette the images were worked on and as they changed they reminded me of the night sky on the McDowell Sonoran Reserve in Scottsdale, from our recent trip to Arizona.

It’s been quite a day…


  1. What a fabulous collection to be ‘all in a days work’! Of course I particularly love that last piece which absolutely oozes unctuous form and colour. But the whole array is stunning. I have ordered copies of the book for both my art student daughters …. gifts for the next time I am in England 🙂

      1. Definitely … the younger one has a following of several thousands on Tumblr so I will make sure she mentions Deb Riley and you for exposure (in the best sort of way!!) 😀

      2. I’m working through emails just now and yes, I did … will give it a watch in the next few days. I’ll also ask daughter number for for her Tumblr address 🙂
