Watercolor

Peter Moehrle and I hit up an industrial area near downtown Seattle to do a little plein air watercolor painting. Most of the places we wanted to go were off limits to civilians, but we finally found a nice little spot tucked away.

7" x 10" - watercolor and gouache

Hopefully we can do this more regularly. I could use the practice.

Feels like I was there too.... a lovely outdoor study! The Goonies piece is sublime...kudos for not plumping for Sloth... you've captured Mama F perfectly, I can hear her comforting Sloth as I look at it :) Great loose background to it too.

Oh I like this a lot!
Excellent mood created here, and great color harmonies. Love the little hit of red in the far buildings.
