Contestant 351 and Friend

10 x 14 in  -  25 x 36 cm     Watercolor     This took in exactly 42 minutes from pencil up to brush down. I am very pleased with it.

While it might appear that had I could have improved things by going in and darkening more of areas, if I had actually done that it would rapidly have become overworked. One of the things that makes this style interesting are the passages like the pillar in the centre of the composition, where the mixture of yellows and ultramarine violet have granulated out into the depressions of the rough paper.

This is the reference used. I cropped it severely from the supplied original.
