This is a watercolor from a photograph that I snapped over the weekend. Skeeter was a small sailboat undercover in a boatyard in Marion, MA. The colors of Skeeter were a stark contrast to the larger, more monochromatic boats in the background. Watercolor with a pencil sketch under. Once again, I need to learn when to stop in the process. In this case I added the extra ink work that was not needed. Daniel Smith Watercolors, White Charcoal Pencil in an Alpha Series Stillman and Birn Sketchbook.
Wayne, there is nothing wrong with that drawing. However your comment did remind me of John Bryant. He used to say “It take two people to do a good water color. One to do the painting and a second to hit the first over the head when it is done.” I never liked to hit or be hit so, I have been setting my watch for 20 minutes. At 20 minutes I stop whether I think I am done or not. It seems if I go a single second past 20 I don’t like the result.
Thanks for the great comment Roger and the happy memories of John.
