The Park 4x6 watercolor
This is the park I walk through with my buddy Robi
everyday. It's one of the few places with trees
in Malta. It's also a place that's loaded with cats
and Robi finds that very exciting!
When the lights went out in Malta my set up in my
was off too, so no more photo reference.
It was too late to pack up my stuff and go outside,
so I decided to pull out some photos and
my dusty watercolor set and play around.
I got cozy in the fading light by my studio window.
Then I had to start pulling out the candles.
I felt like a pilgrim.
It was quite pleasant with no distractions but the problem
is that you can't see any thing very well either.
I figured out early on that watercolor is very easy to over work.
Not easy for an oil painter who likes to pile on the paint to
cover whatever is underneath that I don't like.
I think I peaked in my watercolor stage at about eleven, but
I can see how it would be easy to get hooked again.
This one of the park turned out OK.
