Here is an apparently simple painting, two large rectangles and a short upright. The artist had to work hard to exclude anything that could detract frome the essentials which is colour. Called Awakening II it is a minimalist painting where less is more. It is rectangular with a geometric design and painted in pure watercolour. The subtleties of watercolour can be used to great effect in a simple painting and this example demonstrates the beautiful translucency of the medium. Less is more with thanks to blended watercolour.
