Watercolor Haiku

Let me explain how I created the name for this group of backgrounds.

I really do not like to put some artsy title to most of my backgrounds.
 For example: calling an image say, "Moody Brown Dabs". Why? Because I don't want to influence your creativity on how you use these.
What I might see as moody, you might not.
 So I will name them as basic as I can based on their strokes.

However, I have to be honest. I made these  when I was sick with the Flu and bored. You know how your eyes are too tired to read, watch TV or even be on the computer? So I decided, "I'll do nice cool watery watercolor backgrounds."  
Sounds refreshing when you have a temp of 101.6F right? 

After they all dried,  I decided I was not up to naming these one by one. As I looked at them, in my feverish mind I  thought, "If Japanese Haiku could be visualized as a painting, I think this is what it would be?"  For those of you who do not know what Japanese Haiku is, it is a form of poetry that does not rhyme, and yet it does have balance, is lovely and touches our senses. Many of these poems' themes have to do with nature.  Because these backgrounds can be used for ANYTHING, I hesitated on naming them "Watercolor Haiku" because they aren't always for nature.

It is with total respect to the Japanese, and their Haiku poetry , I chose to name these images  as "Watercolor Haiku". 
  But you use them as you wish.

Just like all the Wet, Moist, Puddled, etc. images on Pages 41-44,
 a lot of water is used. So, when it dries it creates either ripples which make shading upon scanning, or .... I sometimes used a heavier watercolor paper which is grainier and upon scanning creates it's texture as beige or beige speckles.

No two ripples are the same. So these images are seamless on their pages, but the pages themselves don't line up with matching strokes or ripples top and bottom. There isn't much space between the images from one to another so if words or graphics are placed, I doubt most readers would pay much attention.  However, as an option....

All images are sized 780x450 in case you want to make them as a fixed background.
