This watercolor started out with a poured underpainting in the 3 primary colors Antwerp Blue, Indian Yellow and Alizarin Crimson. After the colors mixed and blended the underpainting was allowed to dry and the drawing was created on top. The drawing is drawn deep from memories and imagination - no reference photo was used in this painting. Where-ever possible, I tried to use the glowing colors of the poured underpainting to show through. The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Canson Tientes cold-pressed watercolor paper.
