Where I'm At: New Stuff in Water Color

Though these etchings are from last semester, we recently did an assignment in my watercolor class in which we used an original printed image and water-colored over it. I had been wanting to do it for a while, so this was a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. At first it felt weird seeing the images in color, but after a week of them being dry, finished products, I am really liking the end result.
The assignment for next week is a diptych, as we start to think about the subject for a series of images to work on. Shown in order are my attempts at the assignment. Though we only need one, the first one didn't feel satisfying as a two-part image. I may end up just cutting it in half. After worrying about imagery and color and even techniques I want to work with, I took a deep breath, listened to some music, and the next one just sort of flowed out of me subconsciously.
