Watercolor Sediment [Processing]

Justin Livi uses Processing to create images that mimic traditional watercolor on heavy weight paper on the border between abstract and representational.

Like Geode, the streaks remind me of layers in rocks, but this one I feel breaks from that boundary. The various colors evoke landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes. The pseudo-abstract qualities feel rather Japanese – an association I am quite pleased with. In my opinion Japanese artists have produced some of the best water-based images to date.
