Working into the Night in the Watercolor Studio

Close Up of Savoy Watercolor

I have no doubt that my recent surge in watercolor activity is due to the fact that I have three days remaining before school begins.  I know that my best intentions are not to allow school to cut into my production, but frankly it happened this summer (though I’m pleased to find out that I did actually complete 21 paintings this summer) and it will probably happen again once the school year moves into full swing.

I am fascinated with the complexity of the facade of this Trinidad, Colorado building.  Today I began working on the tree foliage and the upper story windows and brick textures.  The ghost signage is still getting plenty of my attention as well, as I try to darken the shadows and make the bricks more distinct.

Thanks for reading.
