Improbable: 2010.08.08, originally uploaded by Julia Kay.

Watercolor on paper.
13 X 19 inches.
Left-handed with some right-handed blotting.
From imagination and riffing loosely on this self-portrait from 2002.

In the middle of the night, still not fully recovered from a nasty chest cold, and knowing I have to get up early tomorrow, suddenly nothing will do but I must, yes must, play with extremely unfamiliar wet on wet watercolor techniques with my left hand. I blame the incredible, inspiring watercolors of Anne Watkins.

This is the fourth attempt, and it bears no resemblance to the first three complete failures…

Better photo coming with daylight.
