|"Heart of Darkness," 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" watercolor|
My thoughts goes riot with images of traveling in thick, mysterious tropical worlds where you feel small and a foreigner.
Those probably come from passages from my favorite author, Joseph Conrad, especially in my favorite book, "Heart of Darkness."
Conrad is famous for his comment about writing, "Above all I want to make you see."
So today's World Watercolor Month daily challenge prompt, "Rainforest" helped move me out of the four day desert of painting, because Conrad's descriptions cry out for watercolor. Thus "Heart of Darkness," 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper.
"Going up that river was like traveling back to the earliest beginnings of the world, when vegetation rioted on the the earth and the big trees were king. An empty stream, a great silence, an impenetrable forest."--Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
