Watercolor Thicket in the Evening

My alternative 9 x 12″ watercolor of the train structure took a lousy turn.  Composition collapsed.   Don’t have the courage to show it, and wonder now if it can be rescued.  Probably will lay it aside a few days minimum.  Did not get to paint yet today–helped an artist friend from Boston move into his new apartment here in Arlington, Texas.  Pretty exhausted now, having run several necessary errands after the furniture hauling.  Perhaps tomorrow I’ll be rested enough for a fresh start.

At any rate, from my archives now I pull this old watercolor from 1988–one of my first attempts at using Winsor & Newton  masking fluid, so I could make the tree limbs and leaves of a thicket stand out white against a night sky.  Also an early attempt at dry brush on the ground cover.

Thanks for looking . . .
