Variant on Watercolor Abstract (Angel Light II)

The Cover of the current Aperture Magazine shows an abstract by William Eggleston, a great photographer who also does abstract art with markers. There are images inside of his work, and also on the website, though the ones int he Journal are much bigger. I was wondering if the cover image was digitally manipulated from a white original, and decided to try it with mine. (I don't claim my art is in the same style at all, mine was done in water colors, not markers.) It was just something I was eager to try and Steve gets the results in his pocket.

The title of the piece, Angel Light II, comes from the fact that the abstract reminded me of a many-winged cherubim. Click to view larger.
