8″ x 10″ Watercolor
I almost titled this one, “Why I Paint” because it was so fun and so satisfying! It took me a little over two hours and is larger than I usually paint. The original reference photo is from Joan Tavolott over at WetCanvas and it was very inspirational. One of my fellow WC-ers called these my “Dancing Buildings”, hence the name.
I first drew a 30 minute sketch. After it was completed, I began painting in the watercolor, being careful to avoid touching any pencil lines with my paint. When I finished, I erased all the pencil lines. This is the original sketch.
This has inspired a 6″ x 18″ acrylic painting. I’ll post it when it’s finished.
Thanks, Joan, for the wonderful photo! Check out Joan’s blog, too. She’s a wonderful artist.
