Pond Watercolor

This watercolor is a rework of a piece i hammered on last summer. i was never really satisfied -- and after many months of consideration -- decided to return to it.

it is fuller now with better scale and focus.

i was always taken with the background water.... and not the reeds -- so this time around... i spent much more time on the reeds... deepening them.. and bending them with value and shadow.

Wow, Carol. How have I missed your blog for the last year? Your work is dynamic! I especially like the self portrait, what a great idea to start with such a warm background. I'll be back.
