WIP: After the Rain

This is a poured experimental piece I started during the weekend. I introduced this technique to my intermediate watercolor class last evening...I think they enjoyed it but it was also difficult to embrace the concept of masking edges and highlights before pouring. We poured with acrylic inks. This painting is about 8 1/2 " x 12" and is on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper. Hopefully it will be finished tonight or tomorrow.
