Hong Kong Express! My favorite Chinese Takeout!



I wanted to raise the bar on my watercoloring--- so I took on a difficult image to paint.

NEON!

and cars!

and reflection!

I love the Chinese Take Out up the street from my studio.  While I was waiting for my order-- I noticed the bright neon sign in the window.  It was gray outside--- so the colors in the neon were quite vibrant.

I took it upon myself to photograph-- and store the idea away to paint.

Here is my first stab at it!

It needs to be tweaked-- and I will do that in the next few days.

But for now... here is the 'first state'.
