Pixels.............

I spent a lot of time in the basement yesterday sorting scraps and getting them all into one location.  It looks a lot neater now.  I found a group of 100 batik squares and decided to try making a colorwash with them.  It is a good example of a not so great colorwash.  This is what happens when you don't have enough variety of values to choose from.  It looks like an ancient computer picture with obvious pixels.

My first attempt - years ago was very pixelated

May not be a geat color wash, but the colors are still lovely and pure.

I expect this would be exactly what I would end up with. Glad you are around to teach us what is not right.

I think it's kind of charming in it's own way. Maybe not the best color-wash now that I've seen how smooth the transitions can be but still very nice as it's own little project.

I have never tried one yet, but I don't think my first thought was colorwash with this, but rather just somewhat organized scrappy. I kind of like it, although it's very different from your usual. It's less sophisticated for sure, but many people like that.
