Hard Weekend!

“Hydraulic Hammer”
Watercolor, 22 x 30inches
Friday morning I began this and was completely compelled by the compositional arragement of lights and darks. I worked on it Friday, Saturday and Sunday . . .from Sketches. This sort of subject calls up all the knowlege about color, light and shadow.
This is one I am very proud to post.

  7. Wow. Tag central over here. Orange you glad I didn’t tag you too?
    Thought about it, but I tagged you last year and didnt want you to think I was picking on you.

    Nice piece. I like the details down in the water once I am drawn in. The rocks are expertly painted too.
