Watercolor Paintings
5 1/2 • Watercolor

"Neighbors" is an original watercolor rendered on 140 lb. acid free watercolor paper.

Nearly all of my watercolors are small or miniature and I'm not sure why. When I started painting this little piece the colors were dark and lifeless. At that point I'd already spent a significant amount of time on it and didn't want to give up. Over the years I've developed a "never quit" attitude that I try to maintain and so with that motto in mind I took the whole thing and ran it under cold water, which left a sort of softened image and onto to that I began again freely applying paint layer upon layer and here is the result! Much better (trust me) than the first attempt... much better.
