This is a studio watercolor I just completed. All throughout the painting, I was concerned about doing too much–that’s because I was very happy with the block in phase and could have easily just left it as a monochromatic sketch. Instead, I decided to go to full color and turn it into a painting–so, I had to be careful along the way not to let things get out of control and over detailed.
This was a very challenging piece to do in watercolor, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Overall I am pleased with the outcome, but I would like to do it again, possibly 2 more times: once again in watercolor only much larger (this is only 11×14 in.), and another version in oil, which I am sure would have a completely different feel to it.
