Wetting A Canvas For A little Fun

I picked up a canvas made for Watercolor and it sat in my studio for a couple of months.  I was worried I would make a mess, still being new to painting and with Watercolor.  Well I picked up some Violet from my palette and made a very loose mix then I wet the canvas as if it were just a piece of #140 paper, I usually paint on.  Well it was so wet and I feared I had ruined it but I tilted it and let it do it’s thing.

I lifted some off where I wanted the clouds to be and then mixed up a little Indigo.  Being too wet it mixed and mingled. It seemed to be on a path taking over what ever it was that I had wanted and then it evolved into this landscape.  lol  I never use a photo just let it happen and this time I loved it!  Now I must buy another for a wild colorful abstract!
