WATERCOLOR - 20" X 24"
I think this painting has been "mentally" in process for about 5 years. I started with a quick pencil sketch, working out the composition. Then about a year ago,I worked up several "seasonal" color sketches then put them aside until I discovered the sketches this past week in one of my resource files. This is a panoramic landscape of fall colors, with distant hills (mountains?)and isn't anyplace in particular; it's a combination of many places I have been. Sometimes, with watercolor, a painting just falls together all by itself with little help from the person holding the brush. I love it when that happens; it's been a good week in the studio!
