Painting

For water color enthusiasts, there are basic "techniques" used in water color that are simply not found any where else: Wet brush on wet paper, wet brush on dry paper, dry brush on dry paper, and dry brush on wet paper. I felt up to it and this picture has all of those basics. I started and finished in about 3 hours, allowing the paper to dry when I used the wet paper method. I will show the process another time when I upload from my camera.
