 This week, the prompt is ICE. 

Due to my love of the winter, I have decided to take part in this challenge.

 The prompt was good, because it could be interpreted in various ways, from snowflakes to ice cream vans or Ice Cube. 

 In the end, I’ve decided onto a more abstract-ish idea of icebergs. I used different shades of blue and white to create the shade, although I am note sure if it work completely, as I am still getting used to the Daler Rowney watercolour set, that I am using.

 Here is the final work. I quite enjoy the way, the shapes of the ice bergs curve and disappear.


Next time, I will need to think a bit more on how to layer the colours.
