Watercolor Moon

Today we are using one of my favourite techniques for boosting creativity – completely removing color as a variable by using only one color (black in this case). This forces us to focus on other variables instead to make the art more interesting, like texture details. Painting a full moon seemed like a perfect, minimalist subject for this exercise because not only can we use one color on this, we are working with the simple shape of a circle which is a great container for some yummy texture.
