Trees at Sunset


This was intended to be a quick 15 - 20 minute painting. After all, it's only on 5.5 X 8.5 paper, but when you over work something, it's never quick. Part of the problem was waiting till after dark to paint. My shadow gets in the way, in the chair I'm painting in and heaven forbid that I sit at a table like a normal person. The end result is OK, not exactly as crisp as what I was aiming for, but I painted and the was the important detail. Maybe tomorrow I will get an eariler start.

It's difficult to knock off a watercolor in a short time because you have to wait for it to dry - but you did a lovely job on this. the sky is beautiful.
