14 x 21 in - 35 x 53 cm Watercolor This started out with clear thoughts and good intentions. It just got slowly harder as it went on.
In the end I just decided to go for a finish, any sort of a minimal finish and call it done. For a change I painted this standing up at my plein air easel. I was actually inside the putting all my "outdoors" gear to the test.
Next month I am away for another week with John Yardley. It always pays to be up to speed with the use of your equipment.
The ref shown is the unmodified uncropped photo I took on holiday in 2006. For the painting I omitted the central figure in order to improve the composition. I'm sure it is better for it.
