No Stone Unturned

12.25 x 18.5 watercolor painted today using a small slanted palette knife.  Except for a brief light value manganese blue sky laid in with 1.5" flat brush, there are no pencil lines nor brushmarks in this rocky landscape.  I did spritz with water mister to make colors run and emphasized texure on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper.  Total time was about 2 hours.

I love this idea, great way to render planes and surfaces of the rocks.
