Candy Floss Snippet, by Kim Blair

(close-up section taken from a larger painting on 300 lb watercolour paper)

 Many of these snippets have texture... areas with lines and ridges where the next layer of paint glides over the top allowing the underneath paint to peek through.  Sometimes the viscosity and hue of the paint resembles cotton candy...  frothy dollops of spun sugar in sickly sweet pastel tones smeared on the pavement waiting for some unsuspecting running shoe to step in it.
