I had a photo from last summer, of morning light at the edge of a tree lined stream. I want to paint it in oil but just did not know where to start. So I did a quick wash in watercolor to get a feel for the colors.
Liked the rough wash so kept going.....

After finishing this one, another idea came to mind, with all the materials out and ready, I just kept going.
|16 x 20 inches watercolor|
"Contemplation of Each"
Not a perfect (or even close to it) mirror image but it was great practice! There was something fun and interesting about trying this, I was tempted to work with a brush in each hand....huh
Think I see my next experiment :)
