New Paintings via Cropping

22 Mar

One of the advantages of painting with watercolor on Yupo paper is that the paper can be cut down and reframed for a better composition or to refocus on the best part of a painting.  Every once in a while I go through my stored away paintings to see which ones could be made better by cropping.  These four are my newly created paintings from cropped old ones.
