Beginning Watercolor of the Historic Ridglea Theater

Beginning the Ridglea Theater

Temperatures have dropped outside to winter levels.  I spent the afternoon drawing out this Ridglea Theater, located on Fort Worth’s west side.  The evening was then given to adjusting 8 x 10 photos so I could see the details well enough to support this 30 x 22″ watercolor.  Moving out to the garage, I next chose to mask the perimeter of the building, and then allowed about an hour for the fluid to dry.  Finally, around midnight, I began blocking in the sky.  By 1:00 a.m. I could remove the masking and survey what I had done so far.  Sleepy now, I’ve decided to call it a day.  The alarm is set for 6:00 a.m.  Hopefully, I can get some quality work in during the morning hours before my band comes over to practice for an upcoming gig.

Thanks for reading.
