Fondness for Hearts

5.5x7.5 watercolor on 140 lb hot press paper done today.  I first drew in 4 heart shapes with a white wax crayon, then did a quick underpainting using alizarin crimson and thalo blue.  Over those colors I laid crumpled plastic wrap and let it dry all day.  After work, I lifted up the plastic to find a multitude of crinkled areas from which new hearts were developed by negative and positive painting.
