Throwing Shadows...

This is a painting of a photograph provided by Watercolor Workshop for it's July project. It was taken by Sue Drennan. There were 3 to choose from and I chose this one because I love the deceivingly simple appearance. Take it from me - it is not so simple to paint. This was painted on 1/8 sheet of Canson cold-pressed 140 lb. watercolor paper.
