7 . 20 . 2016   ... Watercolor ... Studio work.  10 1/2" x 14 1/2"  ... Something that I enjoy doing is taking ground level landscape photos and then using them as a reference for some of my paintings.  This painting is from one of those reference photos...   This particular painting is 95 % watercolor and liquid graphite with acrylic paint in a few spots...  It's also had several coats of cold wax medium applied to it as a final treatment before securing it down to another half sheet of #400 weight watercolor paper using heavy gel medium....   Yes! it's a process ... But I like the final outcome.  It will be matted in a heavy mat as a floater and then framed...
