2 . 20 . 2015 This is the small painting that I ended up with from a demo conducted in my studio... cleaned it up just a little bit at the end of the day when I could take a good look at where I was on it.. Started out this painting in the upright position as you can tell by the runs that I left there. I'm never too comfortable painting a watercolor from an upright easel, so I transitioned to a flat surface before it got away from me..... it actually turned out better then I was expecting. But that's what so exciting about watercolor .... sometimes it's the end result that says it all.. You can have it go bad from the very beginning, or you can overwork it in the painting process, or have it surprise you and look pretty good as a final.
