I’m occasionally tempted to try my hand at water colouring. Due to my utter incompetence at visual art this tends to be a rather disappointing experience.
What I really do like about water colours is the initial applying of paint to a very wet wash and letting it do its own thing. It can create a translucence and fluidity which lasts briefly before it dries into the paper and becomes flat.
I’ve tried to capture that fleeting moment in music.
